Last night I dreamt such a vivid dream
When all month there have been none
I dreamt of a child as yet unconceived
A beautiful and glorious son.
Complete joy escaped from my body
As I lay on the bed with him
I embraced him close and felt the way
I’ll always feel with you.
My gift from hope, presented to me
In a smiling, doting child
A reward for recovering from all pain
And accepting all denial.
To heal is to help a damaged soul
Only then can that peace be found
Mortals, we are all fighting to keep
Courageous love close and bound.
I speak to this child and tell him tales
Of a sibling he will never meet
But there’s hope in my heart that his precious heart
Will recover me and make me complete.
