They come to me in dreams,
Those I love, but now sadly gone,
No words are said, there’s no need,
They are coming home.
Last night was a restless sleep,
Alone in the dark I stirred,
Got up and walking inside
My vision began to blur.
You were there, but I knew you weren’t,
So real, how I wanted it to be,
You raised your head in greeting,
And wagged your tail at me.
Curled up where I usually sit,
Something you’d never before done,
It seemed right and I let you sleep,
Those last two years were gone.
Your picture looked down from above,
Your eyes bright, coat shiny, no pain,
My beautiful baby had come home,
My heart was complete again.
You came to me in a dream,
You were never that far away,
I returned to bed and slept,
You found your way home today.
