The intangibility of dream beings and unfamiliar songs (a poem)

Had a dream about Lucy last night. It was an odd setting; I remember holding her briefly, but then she went hiding…

I dreamed about you last night
trying to get away
while I tried to hold on tight

I kept calling
but you stayed in hiding

I kept calling
but you’d already gone

I woke up to a song
I did not recognize

I wanted to hear more
but it had already gone

I tried to hold on tight
but it slipped away

like the dream I had last night
