A Borrowed Dream

I had you

once

before I lost you in a dream

A dream that I woke up

from

where you stayed beyond my grasp

 

Visiting me each

night

in the bartered hours of my sleep

Holding me beyond

hope

ever cradling my fear

 

Lending me back to

myself

inside this borrowed joy

Until the dawn reminds

again

—I had you once
