smile

i dream

sometimes…in that space between sleep and awakening

you, the inquisitive boy

always finding something new to wonder over (no illusions here, you were also a hell raising pain in my side)

i dream you went to school, far, far away

that you are pursuing your own dream of studying life in the tree canopy of the amazon

out of reach…

out of touch…

healthy

alive

i know it’s not real, but in my dream…

you smile
