Poems by Mildred J. Douglass (1908-1988)
House of Dreams
Dear House it surely does seem
You enter often into my dreams
Why do I dream of you o'er and o'er
And seem to be opening another door?
Your rooms are large and spacious too
But do I still have need of you?
No matter how many an open door
I pass thru, there are many more.
I seem to see my loved ones there
Laughing and happy without a care.
Even those I love who have passed away
Are with me as though it were yesterday
Many years have passed, I wonder why
You still come to me when I close my eyes
Tonight I lay awake unable to sleep
Wondering if I will ever find the missing link
To explain why I so often dream of you
It would bring peace of mind to me, too.
--- 1978 by Mildred J. Douglass
