The Visit

whenever God snuffs out a flame
and someone really special dies
my family plays an awful game
and makes up all these silly lies

the lights that flicker the phone that rings
a dream’s a visit in disguise

i never once believed these things
until last night when by surprise

i dreamt of you and felt your breath
and learned for sure there is no death
