An old man's dream
by Patrick  Foley

Last night I dreamed of you again and heard you call to me,
And I went back in memory to the way things used to be... 
Your eyes were full of caring and tender as your smile,
For we were young again, my love-   
              for just a little while.

You reached across and touched my face, the way you used to do,
Then in my dream you whispered, "Ma Cushla, I love you."
And I stood tall, my head held high, unbent from years of toil,
For we were young again, my love-   
              for just a little while.

When I awoke, alone and old, I left you in my dream,
Where you stay young and beautiful, in a world forever green.
Just dreams of you are all that's left - to ease life's final mile,
To see your face, to feel your touch...   
             for just a little while.
