Dear Leo,

There was a man in my dreams last night, was it you?
I was curled up beside the door and there was a downpour from my eyes. This man, I didn’t hear him come in but when he took my hands and raised me up, I knew.
Maybe it was his soft but firm grip on me, maybe it was eyes into which I could have drowned, or maybe, just maybe, it was the way the rhythm of his breath matched my heartbeat.
This man, he did not wipe the drip on my chin, no, he opened the door and walked me right through. He showed me how my name could be spelt from the stars and how to make pain go away.
“What heals you is near you”, he said.
When he was done my eyes were dried, it was then he asked why I cried at first. But then I could swear I never cried.
Dear Leo, just one question.
There was a man in my dreams last night, was it you?
