I had a dream late last night
that chilled me to my soul.
It made me cry out loud
to find you not by my side.
I had a dream you see,
it was about you and me
and how we used to be.
The games we played
the trouble that we made,
and the laughter that we both gave.

I had a dream late last night
that it chilled me to my soul.
I almost forgot how we used to say
that we were king and queen of all the world
and no one could see us at all.
I had a dream last night
it made me cry so much,
not to find you
on the other end of the phone.

You have a neice now my brother
and I saw father
he asked how I was doing?
I'm sorry I lied, I said i was alright,
but inside I'm still a mess, my hearts in tatters
its been left far behind.
I wish the best for you
do not get me wrong
but it does not stop the pain thats there.
You always said we would pay for our sins,
I think you've paid more than most.

I should go now the sky is gray
and your headstone is looking dull.
I had a dream late last night
of how much you mean to me.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
