I saw you once
in my cherry blossom dream
smiling back at me

your face the only one I saw
tho I cannot remember it now
as I haven’t seen you since

time moved on
the motionless sky
moved on with it

& I couldn’t wait

were you real?

or were you just a figment
of my imagination


This poem is a sequel of sorts to Cherry Blossom Dreams.
