I dreamed that you stood beside me
In your arms a sled
Your button-up jacket upon my shoulders
Your driving cap upon my head

I dreamed that we would wander the woods
The leaves singing above
I would hum a little tune
As you would murmur "My little love."

I dreamed that you would sing me to sleep
Your songs lost in the sea
I dreamed that you were jolly and well
Though it was never meant to be

I dreamed that I knew you well
And that my heartache would mend
I dreamed that you were oh so well
That we were both together again

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I miss my grandpa, even though I never met him. He died before I was born. I still wonder if, up there, he knows I exist.
