Story 2 – Dream – Part 1



I had a dream in which I saw you sitting on my front lawn.

Just sitting there, looking at me as I hurried down the path.

You said hello, I was surprised

I wondered what was wrong to bring you all this way.


There was nothing wrong in seeing you

I had craved it for so long

That you had arrived unannounced was not what I expected.

As I thought you were more a creature of habit than impulse.


I stood looking at you, not sure what you expected, what I expected

My heart was overjoyed to see you, thereโ€™s no doubt

I took your hand, felt your icey fingers, wrap themselves around mine.

You blushed knowing I had realised you were cold.


I invited you in, turned on the warmth, led you to my kitchen

Hot tea, something to eat, conversation about the weather

You blushed and answered as I thought, hurried, nothing responses

I knew there was a reason, a reason to come to me.


When something is wrong, we fish for answers. You sought assurance

You wanted to know if I was ok with you in my house

That I wasnโ€™t put out by you intruding on my life

When prior to now we had been at a distance.


But I sensed you were in need, why else this great trouble to get here

So I did what I could to relax you, settle you, make you feel comfortable

For a physical presence is so much different to words

A person stands before you, you watch them move, smile, their eyes.


You took all that in; I know you did, for you watched as I moved about

How I placed the cups, how I poured the water, where I sat

For I did sit opposite, for very good reason, to watch you, look at you

For how else could I ascertain the true purpose of your visit?
