Reminded by a Dream
"Yesterday Once More"

I dreamed about her last night.
We were walking, like we used to,
through the garden.
She reached out to a peach tree,
and touched a tiny green peach.
"Yes" I said, "a peach.
We can eat that one when it's ripe."

Then we were in the house,
and my brother Bob was
sitting by her, talking to her.
Suddenly she said "Bob!"
She recognized him!
They hugged, and we were so happy!

There were bad times,
but there were also many good times.
How nice it was to be reminded by a dream!
