Intangible to your touch fleeting when you wake

Wondering the meaning of it if you remember

Frustrated at the thought of it if it escapes you


In a dream you can be anyone, do anything

Beyond the restraints of our waking reality

Lingering in bed trying to prolong it


Flowing over into day dreams a bid to hold onto

the warm thoughts, the dizzying heights

of having everything you ever wanted


Recurring if you are so lucky

for how long is unknown

enjoy it while it lasts

… because there are also nightmares
