Dream - Poem by Kelsey Martinson

I had a dream
That my mom was alive
I had a dream
Where she never died
I ran to her
Holding her close
Swearing
I would never let go
She stroked my hair
Kissed my head
Told me she loved me
I felt the tears
Softly drop from my eyes
She was here
She was real
I was actually with her
I was actually holding her
I had never met her
I was too young to remember
But I knew it was her
She tilted my face up
So she could stare at my eyes
As she softly told me
It was time to say goodbye
I held her tighter
Not wanting to
I had just gotten her back
Could I stand to lose her?
She gently twisted from my embrace
Then whispered 'It's okay'
She told me she would see
Me
Again someday
The my eyes opened
Back to reality
