Tired of Dreaming
written June 16th, 2009

Subconciously I am afraid to go to sleep
Thinking about what I will dream of next
I don’t want to wake up in tears
Going back to sleep facing more fears.

Do I have to see you even though you aren’t real?
Tricking myself into believing you are still alive
In a half sleep, remembering the true story
That I won’t see you when I awake.

I don’t want to dream that I am burying you
Even though you’re still alive
…Even though…
You may be dead in my heart.

    Your poem, Tired Of Dreaming,brings tears to my eyes,because my mother’s birthday is June 16th! She went home to be with the Lord 19 years ago, and it seems like yesterday,we put her away. It hurts so much to see her in a dream and wake-up with a big void in my heart!
