Are You Near?

You are blurred in my mind.

A fleeting shadow,

With a warming presence.

In my dreams your lips move

But your voice is lost,

Trapped in the far corner

Of a cluttered mind. 

Are you near?

The burden weighs me down. 

Knowing that memories will be replaced,

Shatters my already fragile heart. 

Come back to my dreams,

No need for words.

Just hold me tight

Until another new day begins.
