Waking from dream

I just woke as if from a dream
Then realized that all was not
Exactly what I thought it seemed

I shook my head and looked around
I was not  where I believed
But felt like six feet underground

I was but a mere skeleton
Comfy in my last resting place
In a cemetery in Brighton

Strangely looked from my empty shell
To see a passing worm stare at me
"Okay" He says "You're not in Hell"

"Good" I thought "Must get above ground"
"Woah!" Friendly worm then did say
"It's my job to keep you safe and sound"

I shook my skull and argued on
"What of my wife and family?"
"Surely they'll wonder where I've gone?"

Just how he laughed that little worm
"She's beside you; came down last week"
"New ones do tend to twist and turn"

So I laid back down as he said
As all worms friends got back to work
And wife and I snuggled in bed

  1. Well, it sounds like a friendly and comfy resting-place. And with snuggling too! (No way you'd end up in Hell, Robin.)

  2. Well, this is quite the dream. I am happy for the friendly worms. This made me smile, Robin.

  3. This is incredibly evocative, Robin!❤️❤️ I wish you the best always.. and yes no way you are going anywhere except heaven!!❤️❤️

  4. I don't really know how long folks have these dreams after losses. My divorce I was glad to not dream but on a death of a mate I think it would be enjoyable. I doubt this was a real dream though? Nicely written, Robin.

  5. It seems it will be resting in peace together.

  6. A talking worm and snuggles... hmmm!

  7. This truly made me smile. Lovely, Robin.
