5:45

Every night, as I snuggled up in my sheets,

Closing my eyes

My heart drifted to a place

That felt warm and familiar 

 

It felt cold then, uneasy

As if the ground was escaping me,

Lacking my feet of a place

To feel any grounding 

My dream world was  filled with Anxiety 

and unknowing of where

These ungrounded feet would take me

Losing myself to the sound of bells,

Waking up scared 

That my heart wouldn’t have a place to go

 

But these feet always knew where to go

It was always 5:45 in my dreams

The golden hour bringing new beginnings

Each chime bringing these feet closer to the sun

To my sisters, The daisies, 

To the name we love, myself 

 

These bells always had a place for me Ringing my heart home
