The Fog of Memories and Dreams

As Saskia tries to sleep, nearly every night it seems

She falls into the fog between the real world and her dreams.

The images flash before her, as thoughts flutter through her mind

And she tries to picture her father, but it’s a memory she can never find.


Envisioning that old street, in front of the house they used to live

Hoping he’d return so she’d finally have a reason to forgive.

She remembers staring out the window, lost in the street light’s glow

Waiting for him to come home, but of course he’d never show.


Though he left when she was a baby, she had a vision in her head

He’d be carrying a nice briefcase, and tuck her sweetly into bed

The echo of those dreams, always reminding her how she’d feel

Bleed through her mind’s eye, soaked into scars that never heal.


The fog blows in again, obscuring her memories from her sight

But they’ll always just be waiting, to haunt her dreams the next night.
