Dream

Dream

I’m transported through time
To days gone by
Feels good to be back
I can’t deny

“Don’t live in the past”
Is what they all say
“It wasn’t as rosey
As dreams will portray”

But you’ll have to forgive me
If I don’t awake
Because in this world
I’m free from the ache

It’s not in my shoulders
They’re functioning fine
It’s not in my neck
The lump is benign

It’s not in my knees
They’re steady and stable
It’s not in my mind
It’s savvy and able

But the place I most notice
The dream has restored
Is the heart that was broken
And long since had soared

Much like a muscle
When it’s had too much
The heart numbs itself
From enlivening touch

But in this dream world
Where rules don’t apply
Your heart can do more
Than manage a sigh

The passion is strong
The love all floods back
Yanked from the darkness
The exiled black

Cherished ones lost
Through mistake or fate
Bonds resurrected
Love gleaned from hate

And a glimpse at the ones
Who never were
A baby’s whole life
Goes by in a blur

And I can’t help but feel
After being so numb
That it’s all too much
That soon I’ll succumb

That I wish I could shut
Myself off again
Wake myself up
With a  prayer and amen

But I know there’s a reason
He wants us to feel
Maybe it’s part
Of learning to heal

The alarm clock goes off
And I’m startled awake
Knife in my neck
I give it a shake

Nerve endings scream
I grit teeth and swear
This is why mornings
Are so hard to bear

‘Cause defenses were down
And everything flowed
Takes a few minutes
To shut down the node

As everything numbs
And memories fade
Though details are lost
Its purpose conveyed

No matter how much
You cut off and sever
Deep down your heart
Still dreams of forever
