Dreams That Scare

Dreams, like the one I just had, scare me

Not because it was a nightmare

But because it was so real

You were in the dream

And you too, were very real

When I woke up, I instinctively rolled to your side of the bed

Nothing

Just like it should have been

Well, it’s too early to get up

But it’s too late to get back to sleep

So I turn on the light

And grab the old photo album I leave on the nightstand

I thumb through the pictures

You are in every one

Looking at them makes me miss you more

Hope you’re doing well, up there

And I turn out the light

And just sit in the dark
