Last Night I Dreamed Of You


I dreamed of your eyes
You looking at me
I dreamed of your smile
You said I was pretty
As you cupped my cheek
Touching me gently
Tilting your head
Leaning in to kiss me

I was smiling in my sleep
My heart was warmed
I was helpless and weak
And then I awoke
Feeling empty, depleted scorned

So sad I was with sleep in my eyes
Tears then followed
As I pound my fists with despise

It was bittersweet, my love
Cause you were 'my' true love
But I am not yours, was I

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
