Some dreams I had (a poem)

Today was an editing-and-errands day, so this is the only poem I wrote today…

I had a dream that whispered in my ear
but I couldn’t make out the last word of the sentence

I had a dream that she led me into a building
where we were safe—but I don’t know why we were there

I had a dream that we were together
but we were in a strange room, filled with sadness

I had a dream that we saved each other
but I never found out what happened after that

I had a dream that something good was about to happen
but I woke up before anything could

I had a dream that all those dreams were leading to something
but their shouts faded to whispers

I had a dream that whispered in my ear…
