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
