Was it Real?

’Cross the misty road
a wisp of a vanishing puff of smoke -- where
shadows seem to go
it’s gone, I don’t know where.

Lost among the trees
a vision, a ghost of a memory -- look
something hard to see or was it really there?
I grow weary of this mystery.

Was it real?
This other life that I recall?
What I feel
could be the greatest love of all.

What is real?
Somewhere in time I hear your call,
so I kneel
and pray I’ll see beyond this wall.

I’ll see beyond the door
where I believe there’s more
open wide to the other side
where / (my) love can’t hide.

I grow weary of this mystery...

Was it real?...
