Lover's Gifts Xxviii: I Dreamt - Poem by Rabindranath Tagore

I dreamt that she sat by my head, tenderly ruffling my hair with
her fingers, playing the melody of her touch. I looked at her face
and struggled with my tears, till the agony of unspoken words burst
my sleep like a bubble.
I sat up and saw the glow of the Milky Way above my window,
like a world of silence on fire, and I wondered if at this moment
she had a dream that rhymed with mine.

    she had a dream that rhymed with mine. ''

    '' Mi alzai a sedere e vidi il bagliore della Via Lattea dalla mia finestra,
    come un mondo fatto di silenzio in fiamme, e mi chiesi se in quello stesso momento
    lei avesse un sogno che rimasse con il mio. ''

    beautiful!
