The tiger

In my home garden I saw a tiger
Slowly crawling on the dead leaves
I tried to approach, moving in silence
She came and gently put her head on my knees

Her hair was damaged and her teeth decayed
By severe battles and ruthless time
She was just looking for some caring
I barely touched her and I shed a tear

None around to hear me calling
None there to share such a gift 
She finally left me alone with my thoughts
Wondering who that tiger might be.

    The tiger is you, he just needs some repairing to shine again like it was supposed to..

      Thank you! The imagery is from a dream I had three years ago, which made me realize many things…

          I never had such a powerful dream before. I can still remember all the details of it. I woke up in tears and I decided to listen to it and change my life. Thank you for your words ❤

            I know those kind of dreams. They are so deep from the soul. And you awaken with such powerful emotion from them, almost like releasing something so much deeper than our mind even knows.
