“It’s gone! It's gone!”

Hey, I had a dream about you last night!
But now I can't remember what it was.
I remembered everything this morning.
It's not like I did anything exciting today
to wipe it from my memory,
but poof, there it goes.
There it went.

It’s gone!
It’s gone!

I wish I could tell you all about it,
but it's gone.
All I know is that you were there;
In it.
You said something
and did something
and I recognized the significance
of it.
After all, I haven’t seen or talked to you
I don’t know how long.
How are you doing these days anyway?
