in dreams (poem)

the girl
died sleeping in her bed
whilst dreaming
about sitting on a cloud
looking down on the world
people smiling and
singing in the street
except for
the little girl
by the window
crying to herself
rivers of pearly tears
about love lost
and never found
like in the song
about
the girl
who
woke with a vision
of a sky blue with clouds
that went on forever
with birds trilling
and rain drops falling
like glass on stone
and each tinkle
pierced the heart of
the girl
who
died sleeping in her bed
whilst dreaming
of looking down on
a world that never was.
