I Dreamt I Saw You Again


I dreamt I saw you again last night. A dear friend from years past. I dreamt that I held your daughter, told her I loved her. Heard her say it back. I dreamt I saw your son and smiled at him; he at me.

I dreamt I saw you again last night. Though there was much sadness, you were happy too. I heard your joy-filled laughter tinkle like a bell. When you smiled, your eyes crinkled at the edges. When we talked, your eyes filled with tears as did mine.

I dreamt I saw you again last night and we shared a meal like we have so many countless times before. I dreamt we shared a cup of coffee, then a glass of wine.

I dreamt I saw you again last night and we were able to say all the things that have been unsaid. I’m sorry that I judged, I was afraid for you. I’m sorry I wasn’t the friend you needed, I desperately wanted to be. I’m sorry I didn’t love you well enough, I’m still learning how to do that. I’m sorry I failed you in so many ways. I’m sorry I didn’t know what to say or how to talk to you. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to help you talk to me.

I dreamt I saw you again last night and we drank deeply of each other's conversation. We pondered the meanings of things and their significance. We dwelt on our own meaning and our own significance.

I dreamt I saw you again last night and you hugged and kissed my daughter. Made her laugh and then we laughed with her. Your daughter played with my daughter. Your son danced for them both causing all of us to laugh so hard we cried.

I dreamt I saw you again last night and our friendship was resurrected. When I awoke, our friendship was still dead.
