Sweet Dreams [Poetry]

by share

Sleeping.

it looks like you’re sleeping

i wonder what you dream of

as everyone around you is weeping

 

Silence.

the room is silent

because your voice 

is what we long to hear

 

The whispers.

whispers graze the walls of this home

i think we’re afraid of waking you up

afraid of disturbing your perpetual peace

 

Soft kisses are placed on your forehead,

we cry selfishly 

because we long for you to be here

we’d give anything to end your sleep

 

“See you on the other side”

“You were supposed to bury me”

but right now we are mere spectators 

as we watch you dream

 

While we lay you to rest

i can’t help but realize

that the silence says more 

than words could ever mean

 

We love you

We miss you

We need you…

 

and sweet dreams
