Just a dream

I guess it was all
Just a dream,
Something that
Could never,
Ever be.

I guess we were
Too far apart,
Too distance in space,
Too separated
By time.

I will never forget
That last night we shared
Talking and laughing and crying
Until the birds got up.

It was a sweet dream
that we shared, and
I will always remember it
With a naughty smile
And a joyful tear…

    It is wonderful that you can be cherishing the good – loss of any kind throws up so many options to us in how we can respond, and I think grief (and I whole-heartedly include grief for an ended relationship) comes in waves and phases and if you can hold on to the joy of what was good that is a blessing… and that is never less valid when it might be overtaken by anger, pain or sorrow later… I think the good memories tend to return, with time, and the desire to allow them space.

    • its funny how we always imagine that we will look back, with our loved ones, on our tears, and laugh – we never realise that we will look back on our laughter, and cry.
      its all part of life’s rich tapestry, eh? all part of our wonderfully rich lives. fuck pain, i say. fuck it all. let’s just be as human and as us as we can be. thank you for making me cry and smile at the same time

    Even if you’re sad when you wake up, at least you have that moment to remember.

      • I’m just glad you cherish the sweet part even while you’re going through the bitter. That’s not something I see often. And it makes you purdy.
