A dream a wish
Wishes and aspirations have a way of turning up in your dreams. The things that you have given up on, just come up and occupy your night dreams. I was so happy as long as this dream lasted.. I did not want to wake up and then it faded...
A dream, a wish
Her limpid eyes look into mine,
The stars in them so brightly shine,
A smile that spreads light up her face,
Sends my heart into a tizzy pace!
Her face smeared with chocolate,
That she holds in her hand half-bit,
Reaching out to me and touching my cheek,
I can feel my face go all gooey,
Lifting her face and kissing mine,
I feel a tingling run down my spine,
Her beautiful pink frock, now a mess,
And so was mine as she did press,
Her hands and face into my dress,
Prints and patterns she did make,
It is all well for love’s sake!,
Holding my finger she drags me on
Towards the lake and into the pond
I start to say, “No, not now”
But I guess it’s too late anyhow
We waddle into the slushy pond
Squishing mud as we bond
Feeding the ducks and the drakes
Lying on grass around the lake
Watching the clouds as they pass us by
Blowing at them and laugh as they fly
Under the shower we sing and play
Until its time to kneel and pray
Thank you Lord for this beautiful day
Thank you for a happy today
Her breathing now so gentle
As my eyes with tears fill
I watch her dissolve and vanish!
It is just a dream and a wish!
This was a dream I woke up to.. a happy, sad dream. I had always wished to have a daughter. I count among the very few women in our family, the proportion is rather weird in our family it is one girl to four boys. I just gave up thinking it may not be worth taking the risk and like my mother I may end up with five boys... Two is a handful and that is all I can manage... But I had a surprise this morning!
