I Saw You Yesterday - Poem by Colin Breck Boardman

I saw you yesterday,
When you visited
Of your own accord
And deigned to speak
To me in tongues;
And as we chatted
Of inconsequential things
You handed me a note
Which I did later open
To find hidden inside
A treasure of handwritten rhyme,
An extended sonnet of sorts,
Which I battled with
As you looked on proudly;
But as meaning began to dawn,
My consciousness slipped,
And I fought back waking
In a vain hope to remember,
Or at least not forget,
Yet the words drifted back
Whence they had come,
Back to the distant shades,
To sleep for eternity.
