Fighting To Stay Asleep: A Poem
She spoke to me again today
Her love filled my dreams
A mother’s love
Even from above
Can seep through the tightly stitched seams.
She told me not to worry so much
Tasks would get done, things will get paid
Positive words urging me on
To live life before it is gone
The longer I’m awake, her image does fade.
She said she would send help our way
All I need is her love, but she explained more
Her words included money
I found it quite funny
I doubt The Bank of Heaven has an exit door.
She also reminded me of my desire to get fit
My dream showed me running for the state line
Legs moving, fire in my veins
No acknowledgment of my pains
Her support transcends even though she left me behind.
She filled my sleep with so much love
Upon waking, I found myself trying to hold on
To her sweet face
She’s lost in a haze
In my dreams she will be, but in life she is gone.
