Richard Dorrough


I WOKE AND I ROSE


Someday I Know
Ill wake from this dream
With nary a wimper
Much less a scream

It will be something new
Or so I would pray
A glimmer of hope
Like a budding spring day

I dreamt again
That I woke and I rose
I worked and I payed
Until Darkness repose

I dreamt again
That I woke and I rose
I worked and I payed
Until Darkness repose

I dreamt again
That I woke and I rose
I worked and I payed
Until Darkness repose

For God sakes
Please
Someone wake me
Someone take me
Before I wake again
