AbsentÖI donít recall

I donít remember what I dreamt

Nor what ensued after I slept

 

Because I wasnít awake

Nor was I aware

 

Itís only when Iím alert

That I donít forget

 

At times I donít recall scenes

That my eyes had seen

 

Because although vigilant

My mind wasnít sentient

 

Itís when awake is present

And aware is not absent

 

And theyboth unite

Into a single entity

 

That is the only interval

Where the two revel

 

And that is the only moment

That is still present
