Drowning Dream

I am submerged in a freezing cold sea
With waves beating mercilessly
And tugging at my whole being
I am aware of my mother alongside me

Suddenly she starts to sink
I’m overcome with panic
I need to save her
I need to help
I need to rescue

I wake to a morning song
Of birds singing their happy tune
Relief washes over me
As the sun shines brightly

I will see my mother in a while
She is not dead but is well
For I spoke to her yesterday
And heard her quiet voice

A knock at the door pulls me out my reverie
Officers at my door
There was an accident
And I need to know
My mother is no more

In a split second I realise
Dreams are no longer dreams
And a nightmare is real
