Recently, I dreamt about you

like back when we were small

So innocent and life was grand

And you and I knew it all


I've dreamt about you several times

You were a calm in a scary childhood

And each time you were the same 

Offering peace like a friend would


Haven't seen you since we were teens

And life was different back then

I'm glad we are on our own paths

So, until I see you again.....

          A fine poem. I enjoyed reading it! It’s so true how at times we dream of childhood friends and wonder about them!

            Our minds take us back in our dreams and romance with reality. Well mine do anyway.

            This reads like a thoughtful tribute to a respected person about whom you wander... 'why do you enter my dreams'.
            Will you ever know why.... or are there verses you'll never publish?

            I like it when a writers poetry encourages me, your reader, to create further mystery.... i.e. 'what is she not telling us here?'

            (DuskArising subdues a naughty laugh).

            • Christina8

              LOL you won't get an answer out of me! I love your playful thoughts and laugh and maybe someday I will write on the matter. Thanks for stopping by!

              Those dreams of time and friends gone by are always with us knowing that we will meet again - see you there Christina.

                  Well penned poem, Christina. Oftentimes we reflect on old friends, but it is better leaving sleeping dogs lie. :-)
