Beautiful and True

I met you in a dream
and you said tell me something true
And the only thing I could think of
was that things are hard.

And then you said
tell me something beautiful.
And the only thing I could think of
was the sky has more answers than I do
but I always forget to look up.

Finally, you said
tell me something true and beautiful
and I said to you
that I know you are not really here
but seeing you again,
even in a dream,
is more beautiful than the sky.

And that’s when we look toward the sky
together
and when I look back
you are gone again
and all that is left behind,
even in this dream,
is a memory.
