I have a recurring dream.
A dream of such contentment that whilst asleep I am cradled in bliss.
It’s a simple dream,
I am home, in bed.
The room is dark, but lit with a blue glow,
I feel a gentle breeze
& the happy purr of my cat vibrates beside me.
My hand rests on my firm, round belly,
caressing the life that resides within.
In the distance I hear Simon & Garfunkel singing about where love lies waiting.
I am blanketed in happiness.
As the music grows closer,
I approach reality.
I bask in the feeling for a few magical seconds before sadness drowns me.
I realise as I rise to start my day where home is for me
And how much I long to be,
