once dreamt

I had a dream my mother was ill
Optimistic and sure of elixir’s will
Soon, once dreamt, I witnessed twas true
I’ll say a prayer to comfort you.

I had a dream your illness grew grave
Sands in the hourglass surely be brave
Soon, once dreamt, I witnessed twas true
I’ll say a prayer to healeth you.

I had a dream my mother had died
Swiftly and certain old age had lied
Soon, once dreamt, I witnessed twas true
I’ll pray to God to welcome you.
