I saw you last night in my sleepless dream,
Wearing a gown woven with red roses;
You looked so innocent and prim,
just like your past poses.
I longed for your heart and soul, moaning,
Forgetting that I was abandoned;
You smiled to me, beckoning,
Cheerful and all adorned.
I woke up from that dreary fitful sleep,
Just to know , you were not there;
My heart moaned, I did weep,
Knowing ,I could not bear.
Life as I later knew , is a short sweet smile
Upon the cheek of time for a while !
