It's Just A Dream - Poem by Jessica Bangert

I wake with happy thoughts of you
I reach out for you and then remember it
was just a dream.

I try to make your memory fade, but when
I think I'm forgetting you there you are
reminding me that my world is gone.

I keep hoping you will take me back, but I'm
only fooling my heart, but it
gets me through the day.

I lie down to sleep I hold a pillow
and pretend it's you. I fall a sleep with
happy thoughts of me and you together again.

I wake up wanting you to hold me close
and I remember it was just a dream.
