Carry On Tuesday - Last Night I Dreamt

Carry On Tuesday

Deeply sleeping
Last night I dreamt
Of people long gone
And woke up weeping

The dream so real
We were laughing,
talking and smiling
I knew how I would feel

Why is it that we dream of the dead?
Afraid to let go, or just want to be close
They all seemed so happy
I promised, no tears would be shed

Last night I dreamt and lost time
Only to awake and feel melancholly
It's hard to understand why they go away
Last night I dreamt, the memories are mine


  1. That's a beautiful poem. full of warmth and love for lost friends and family. nice writing.
    I love the place you live. I have always wanted to visit but I get off on the wroong road looking for the pot of gold.

  3. You've put into a poem what happens to me on a regular basis. What is difficult to handle is the feeling that remains for the remainder of the day after a dream such as this.
