Old Friends, Now Strangers

Do old friends, now strangers, make appearances in your dreams?
The old friendship, familiar and distant,
like remembering the smell of snow
in the middle of a long hot summer.

There’s something magical about getting to hear her laugh again- to see her smile.

You try to stay asleep
long enough to tell her how much has happened,
how much has changed.

Inevitably, morning light will shine in,
and you will wake up,
sad for reasons you cannot quite explain.

  3. Yes, I still dream of old friends. These are always happy, fanciful dreams. 🙂
