Sweet Dreams Poem by Jan Oskar Hansen

Sweet Dreams?

Dreamed of you last night, the ease

of our embrace, not wanting to break

free, or be alone, the dream ended

as it began us entwined, in the grip

of eternity; woke up to a calm

bedroom and your vanishing smile.

My wife breathed evenly beside

me the pain of lost love and

the sadness of not loving her,

the way I still adore you, kept me

trapped in a melancholic

mood till released by a new day.
