Author: Catyrose


In the darkness of night
I felt the softest and gentlest touch
Tracing lightly across my brow

Words spoken in less than a whisper
Heard only by the heart
Leaving a lasting impression upon the soul

Raindrops trickling delicately outside the open window
A fresh clean scent pervades the atmosphere
The sash blows faintly against the pane

All at once the wind picks up
Lightning flashes in the night sky
Thunder crashes and rolls down from the heavens

The night is no longer still
Awakening from the most peaceful sleep
I see his face for an instant

He is surrounded by light
I reach out to touch his cheek
To wipe away the tears raining down

My fingers touch the air
Was this a dream?
Or was he really there?

Watching over me as I slept
As a loving father
Looks in upon his child

In a dream or perhaps reality
I was left with a blessing
As he made his presence known to me
