Poem - Goodbye in a Dream

To sleep is to dream. To dream is to speak to yourself, even if the voice comes from a person you love.

Goodbye in a Dream

When goodbye is in a dream
it hurts no less as if real
rejoicing when the clock is turned
hearing what you have to say
when sleeping words resonate
with mute actions in wakeful world
the gaps are filled by the mind
seeking to know which way to go.

This puppet I hold dear to heart
oh so solid yet still a doll
said the things I need to hear
in the veil of slumber’s realm
things were said meant not to hurt
by a mouth that was my own
subconscious hints still have barbs
though they came from a lovely one.

Grace is mercy’s only balm
regret served up by the mind
you know not what you said
I’ll hold these close to my heart
when goodbye is in a dream
perhaps because I’ll never hear
these statements from the perfect one
now gone from my lonely life.
