Last night I had a dream


Last night I had a dream-

Where a little girl came walking down the lane…

In her hand she held flowers

And told me that they’re not for sale…

 

I smiled at her,

Thinking that is what she expected to see,

But she looked at her flowers and said,

Fake smiles they can never give to me”…

 

I reached my hand out,

Hoping to touch her little pretty head,

But she looked at her flowers,

They will never touch me for their own sake”, she said…

 

I tried to talk to her,

Thinking she’d talk like her age,

But she looked at her flowers and said,

They will soon begin to fade in my cage”…

 

Now I tried no more to treat her like I thought,

I frowned a little wondering what have I got ,

I looked into her big bright eyes to fathom what is behind,

And they had a depth I did not imagine to find,

By and by I saw her fade into a blurry, blurry sight,

And opened my eyes to the beautiful morning light…
