Praying For Dreams

Every night

Before I crawl into bed

I

Get on my hands and knees

And bow my head

And pray to a god

That may

Or may not

Be real


I ask my God

To help me reach her

In my dreams


If I could visit her

In her dreams

And remind her

That I am still here

And that she means everything to me

If I could just reach her...

And I ask my God

If I can get really lucky

And have her visit me

In my dreams

Where I can see her smile again

And hear her voice

And paint her smile

And kiss her soft cheek


Every

Damn

Night

I do this.


But


I haven’t dreamt in years.
