Dream Of Me When You're Asleep

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Promises are meant to keep
or what's assurance for?
Dream of me when you're asleep or kick me out the door.

Caterpillars slowly creep
or what's transition for?
Dream of me when you're asleep or set my wings to soar.

Prairie grasses feed the sheep
or what's pasturage for?
Dream of me when you're asleep or toss me to wild boar.

Disasters make all men weep
or what's misfortune for?
Dream of me when you're asleep or jab me in the core.

Check it out before the leap
or what's inspection for?
Dream of me when you're asleep or wipe me off the floor.

Retributions are fair reap
or what's reprisal for?
Dream of me when you're asleep or even up my score.
