Lip Gloss and Pony Tails: Losing a Child
I once dreamt that I had a cloth to put beneath your feet. To protect you from the gravel of the rigid, cracked concrete. I would carry you across the sea to view the waterfalls and find a cave to go inside and explore the darkened walls. We can take a ride on the rainbow and search for the pot of gold find the leprechaun that owns it and hear the stories once untold. We can catch the drops of crimson from the sunset and the stars use the blades of grass as swords just to talk about our scars. I'd make the London bridge into a giant swing so you can say you saw the world sitting on a string. I'd curl your hair and pin it up like Juliet and top it with a vale then grab the prince from your wish to complete your fairy tale. With all the freshest roses I would walk you down the aisle Hand in hand to give you away but smiling all the while. Even though your arch of peace was actually Heaven's gate I'll let you go and gladly know I don't have long to wait. Together again we can laugh while brushing each others wings catch up on everything I've missed and do all the girlie things. Until then you can splash in my tears and pretend that they are streams For I know that everynight you will always be wading in my dreams.
