A DREAM

God sent me an answer
My dreams, two nights in a row.
I dreamed of my cousin.
Our relationship used to glow.
We favor each other
On earth there is no other
It canít be replaced in my heart.
God settled it for me
Even though still apart.

In my dream I felt the closeness again
That my younger cousin and I had
Back then.
I remember the way it felt-- as we played, grew, dressed alike, laughed a lot and grew.

And then grew apart

In the dream we were restored
And all offenses forgiven
We were happy again
As a family
All in one accord.
There was no jealousy nor any greed and
I knew that my heart was no longer in need.

In reality we are wounded, and seem to be dying
My heart breaks because of the reason
Forgiveness has not been for me very easy
But I am praying and I am trying.

In reality she doesnít need me
But in the dream she did
Nothing offended nothing to dread.
The love was so clear and free.

I had forgotten how to forgive, but when I awoke
My burden was lifted.
Money the culprit--greed and jealousy
Somehow we are caught in a broken family tree.

For years I have carried this burden
But my dreams have set me free
No longer will I cry or pray
For forgiveness that could not come
For now in my heart it is over and healing has begun.

I liked the story conveyed here. It's hard when you grow apart from someone.

At first, I was trying to find a rhythm or rhyme scheme, and had a bit of trouble, but it seemed to get better towards the end.

I loved the ending, and hope that this would be the beginning of a restored relationship!
