dream family

Woke up this morning

tears on both cheeks

remembering a life I never had

husband, three children so joyful, so glad

heart tugs at phantom memories

to love, to cherish, to hold

only to vanish, snatched away

years later, I reminisce

and miss the family that never was

It felt too real

So why let him go

he looks at me with love

I felt my children’s hands, in mine

then watched them dissipate

In to that hazy dreamscape

never to return

So sometimes, In the still

of my grief and sadness

I yearn to find the way back
