Last Night

Last night you were in my dreams

Hale, God! and aware

The one that remembers

And forgives

That cares and is concerned

That understands

And wants to play someday

Remorseful and still full of joy

We spoke about our lives

And our regrets

You asked how I was doing

And I started to cry

Broke the connection,

Woke up

To feel tears streaming down my face

To feel the back of your hand

This time

Softly caressing my face

To hear you whisper

That you love me,

That you’re sorry,

In my ear

it was a dream I had once, it wasn’t real
