A happy day

the dream
last night
this morning
it was there

my young self sitting
on a fallen tree
dappled soft sunlight shining
through the clean, green elms

a dear lost friend
for company
as we sat wordless
comfortable together

echoing birdsong
the rustle
Of leaves
in a soft breeze

the wood is gone
the friend is gone
the years have gone
But what remains

will always live
in my heart my soul
and my memory
those years

can never
be stolen away
i woke to my dream

i am at peace today
