    When I woke up from a deep sleep.
    I stood up and rubbed my eyes,
    I searched in empty space
    For a Trace of what my Dream had shown me.
    I mean after all it has to be a dream
    That I saw, That I felt
    But my knees are sore Like it was hours
    I knelt…
    Down praying that this didn’t happen
    Because it wasn’t supposed to go down like this.
    Forever I should have had that hug or kiss
    Or that dap of the fist
    My dream took a bad twist
    Of fate, and I can’t relate
    To this state
    Of mind that has me wanting to push the
    Rewind
    Button but cd’s don’t have that function
    **** maybe it was too much alchohol consumption.
    Tossin and turnin all night
    Reality of my life I’m trying to fight.
    “Jigga” said this can’t be life, This cant be right.
    Im feeling that like an itchy sweater
    Beaded sweat across my brow.
    But how?
    But Why?
    Did I do something to cause their transistion
    A past transgression that caused my
    Nightmarish situation?
    My sleep was supposed to be pleasant my
    Reality blinded,
    But as I look at the “tatts” on both shoulders
    Im reminded that there both gone
    Home.
    To be with HIM.
    I try to open the blinders in the room so it won’t
    Seem so dim.
    The sun shines through I squint my eyes from the glare
    Life sometimes ain’t fair.
    But I guess this pain I felt
    Is due to the cards I was dealt.
    So God, I need the wine from you SON to fill my cup.
    For that is the only way I can muster the stregnth to roll on.
    Cause when I woke up…….Mom and Pops
    Were gone…..

    Some things can be so painful that they don't seem real. I liked the way you posed this feeling, it was crystal clear.
