I Dreamt

I dreamt that she sat by my head, tenderly ruffling my hair with her fingers, playing the melody of her touch.
I looked at her face and struggled with my tears,
till the agony of unspoken words burst my sleep like a bubble.
I sat up and saw the glow of the Milky Way above my window, like a world of silence on fire,
and I wondered if at this moment, she had a dream that rhymed with mine.
