A Dream Within A Dream

I asked if it were really you
in my hazy sleepiness
and you answered
“yes indeed it is really me
I am not a dream
within your dream”

so I let you in trusting
pulling back the sheets
and covering you gently

then as you turned to me smiling
your face slowly dissolved
and startled I awoke

bright morning sunlight piercing my face
demanding I awake
for yet another day

or is this

again another dream within a dream?
