Only A Dream - Poem by Kerry Santana

Daytime comes and goes.
Night time comes I fall asleep and begin to dream.
I dream Of a Old Funeral Coach,
The driver with a black tailcoat and black top hat to match.
The Four black Horses,
The lights on the side all lit up and flowers ontop.
As I glanced in the back I noticed a coffin.
As I tried to open the doors to glimpse who was inside the coffin.
They would not open yet they remained locked.
Yet I heard a voice reply:
'It is Only A Dream'
But The Black Funeral Coach with The Man with the black tailcoat.
And the black top hat, the four black Horses, the lights all lit on the side.
And the flowers on the top of the coach is yours.
It all represents the changes and and your everyday struggles in life.
The doors and coffin in the back remain locked,
Because your time has not come.
Yet when your time comes you will dream this again.
The time will come when you have this dream,
And then when your able to open the locks,
And and lift the lid of the coffin,
And glimpse you inside,
Then you will know b'I'am
Bringing you home to 'ME'.
Because it will be you,
You see, inside the coffin.
'I' say to you my son wake up now,
Wake up now for it is 'Only A Dream'
And your time has not come to pass to come home to 'Me'.
Yet, 'I Love You My Son' now wake up for it is 'Only A Dream'.
