When I Dream of You

When I Dream of You
Cloudy eyes drift into a dream filled sleep
Suddenly, you are there
You appear as though you were never gone
We fall into the same routine
I yearn for your arms around me
But you are cold ..distant
Something has changed
You are present but absent
It is as though you have somewhere else to be
It's painful seeing you knowing it cannot last
A part of me wants you to leave
My overwhelming love for you wants you to stay
Did it really happen?
Did you really die?
I know that it is real
When I awaken groggy and heavy lidded
You are no longer there
I begin to cry...
