in a faraway place



like petals

softly falling to the ground

you walk into my dream

make no sound

i look into your eyes

full of feeling

i look into the mirror 

deep with meaning

you smile

walk away

i wake up 

to another day 

in a faraway place

where there is no you

strangers ask

how do you do

i say

i am fine

i think 

i left my heart behind

  1. A gentle and heartfelt piece, Sobhana, with acceptance and understanding, and which seems to capture the elusive wistful feelings just beyond words that fade away when we wake up from a dream.
