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
