I dreamt last night that you were here
I dreamt you'd come to stay
But when I greeted you, my dear
You turned your face away.

I spoke to you, and in my dream
You did not answer me
And in my heart there rose a scream
I saw 'twas not to be

I woke, and felt remembered pain
That dream was hard to bear
I know you'll not come back again
For you were never there.

Powerful. Did the scream come from your own throat or was it more a memory of a sound?

Thank you, Alicat.
The scream was an image for years of failing to make contact - the frustration that never found its way out while he was still alive.

Thank you Whtdove, too - our replies crossed in the post, I didn't mean to seem to ignore you.

This has the hitting power of a closed fist..short, precise and right to the point. An excellent display.
