Dreams






what dreams do you have
fair child of mine



your brown eyes twinkle   
rivalling stars glowing in your room  


your belly laughter peals
reading books on princesses, frogs and goats 


do you know that treasures 
are under your pillows every night


do you know that your hands
hold the magic key to unlock any doors


when you gaze up at the blue skies 
believe you can fly like a bird if you want to


when you dwell upon wide open seas 
imagine possibilities of being ship's captain 


chase every rainbow in your childhood,
run after turtles and hares in all the races 


every day is beautiful and precious, 
and sharing your gifts mean blessings tenfold   


i may not be the perfect mother all the time
but know this, i will always love and believe in you
