In my dreams I keep losing things

Walking along and suddenly I realise

I don’t have my handbag

I did have it, but it’s like

I just put it down and walked away

So now I retrace my steps in panic

Looking frantically for the handbag

With the purse and the money and my driver’s licence

With all those things necessary for living

Or I’m driving

And then suddenly I’m walking

And I don’t know where I parked my car

Or why I would get out and walk away

I need my car to get where I’m going

And why did I leave it behind

So. what does it mean in the waking world

Why do I keep discarding what’s important

And forgetting where I left it

What is my mind telling me

What am I missing

Where did I leave it

And, most importantly, why?
