Dream Escape

Tears fall softly upon the pillow

Eyes open, but not seeing what is before them

A small whimper and cry escapes

Eyes slowly and gently close

Soft dreams wrap around the soul

The heart slows and stops crying

Loneliness and pain ease and fade back and become dull

The heart whispers a sigh

Night fades into day, as the sun rises

The dreams become fainter and lighter

Reality wakens the mind and heart with a chill

The Dreams slip away leaving only a faint comforting thought
