I Dreamed Last Night

I dreamed last night of

My late husband.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

He was pleasing everyone else

But was angry at me.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

We laid in bed together

And all he did was complain.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

We were at the beach

And he bought postcards to send to friends.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

Didn’t enjoy the sand and surf,

Telling me to go away.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

 

He’s been dead a long time now,

And I’ve been with my true love.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

The dream doesn’t scare me,

It didn’t rattle my bones.

Miles to go and promises to keep.

I guess I’m better now,

So this dream will just slip away.

 

Miles to go and promises to keep.
