Dreamt You

Dreamt you were sitting right beside me

in my sleeping haze, though I am not sure

if I am fully asleep or dreaming awake.


So tired my head is a jumbled mess.

Maybe, I hope that you can help me

to straighten out this confusion.

of interchanging thoughts.


Knowing that you are a spirit

we cannot have a real conversation

like we used to in the middle

of another sleepless night.


You were honest and direct.

I miss that, especially now.


In my tired mind, people take advantage

so you voice was appreciated.


To straighten everything out

in this drowsy, haggard state,

that is why I dreamt and see you.

Hear A Song

Sometimes I hear a song

and think about you

and those smiling eyes.

Remember it all with a grin

and a quiet tear.


Some memories seem so long ago

while others feel like they are in the now.


Think to myself maybe if

it was a different time

for both of us back then.

May we still be holding hands now?


The private words spoken,

secrets and thoughts

have been held forever within.


The proper words

that came with caring

echo through my mind

as I miss you

each time I hear that song.

Dear Stranger IX

Dear Stranger, how have you been?

It has been a while since

anyone has seen you

or even when they do

people are wondering

which person they are going to see.


You once knew who you were.

Nowadays the self-assurance

has all but disappeared.


In today’s world how you

handle yourself has changed

so much as well as

your priorities in life.


the person I met

knew what their goals were

and chased to meet them

but since those goals were met

you seem so lost now.


The time spent with self

has been met with a wall

of people tugging and pulling

that was once not allowed.


Remember when to be a companion

to you the had to be special.

It is not that way anymore for you.

Seems now the person has to be

willing to be breathing.


Not sure if you are hiding

away from your true self

or you do not know

who you are or wish to be.


Were you always a chameleon

and never fully shown people

the person you are?


That is where the confusion is

and though we see you

you will be a stranger to us all.
