i dreamt



I dreamt that she sat by my head,
tenderly ruffling my hair with her fingers,
playing the melody of her touch.

I looked at her face and struggled with my tears,
till the agony of unspoken words burst my sleep like a bubble.

I sat up and saw the glow of the Milky Way above my window,
like a world of silence on fire,
and I wondered if at this moment
she had a dream that rhymed with mine.

Rabindranath Tagore
