I forget the word

I lay there
In dreamless imposed sleep
My body, lost deep in soft white folds,
Occasionally, glazed eyes came into focus,
Ears heard the faint moan of a body.
Each cell inside me had settled down… settled in,
I tried hard, to nudge myself.
Will to get up, search among the debris, for once me.
But I lay there, in limbo, motionless
I dug deep, hours
there came to mind a word…
I know not its meaning.
