I Dreamt About A Stranger

I dreamt about a stranger

It wasn’t you

It was someone else

We never speak

I hate seeing this figure, why can’t it be him?

You are always just out of reach

I dreamt about a stranger again

Every time I think

Maybe... maybe it’s you

But it never is

I hate having these dreams

Always the same

I dreamt about a stranger once more

I can’t see his face

But i‘m always so sure that it is you

Maybe for a second, it is

The back of your head, your posture, so familiar to me

But it’s not you

And I realise, I have just dreamt about a stranger again.

Forever Young

I’ve been thinking a lot about life recently How fleeting and unfair it can be at times How suddenly you left Without a hug or a kiss goodbye Maybe you were too good for this world So much experience


That’s when it hit me We have deprived ourselves of it for so long How can we learn again? I don’t think we realised until now I just want to be heard, talk to me, hold me I don’t know where to start
