Awakening (2)

I had a dream within a dream
And had a dream in that,
And, in each one, a solid beam
Of sunlight pierced my hat.

I walked along with so much light
Contained inside my head
I didn’t know if I was bright
Or if the night had fled.

So, thinking it was time to go,
I tried to wake up thrice.
Whatever I attempted, though,
I only managed twice.

And, since that night, the sun has shone
Inside me, everywhere I’ve gone.
