I Return to My Childhood Home Every Night

HOW MANY DREAMS UNTIL I AM MADE WHOLE?

I wander nightly searching for my soul,
Gathering the pieces left behind.
How many dreams until I am made whole?

What names must I recall? How many roles
Must I replay? Untethered from my mind,
I wander nightly, searching for my soul.

My heart aches, waking. Daylight can’t console
This grieving spirit. Morning feels unkind.
How many dreams until I am made whole?

This endless search exacts a heavy toll,
Yet I will gladly pay for all I find.
I wander nightly, searching for my soul

Among the ruined memories time stole.
My past and present lives now recombined.
How many dreams until I am made whole?

Each nightmare brings me closer to my goal,
Exposing fears and demons still aligned.
I wander nightly, searching for my soul.
How many dreams until I am made whole?
