Vestiges of a Life

-Linda Lee Lyberg

I dreamt a dream of yesterday

When you were not so far away

A time when you and I were one
When we could love from sun to sun

A world where only we were what mattered
But now that world, that dream has shattered

And in its place there’s loneliness
A world devoid of happiness

Once a dream and now a nightmare
 Where a kiss, a hug, a smile is rare.
