LAST NIGHT I DREAMED
Last night I dreamed I lost a child,
The horror, sadness, all emotions seemed so real.
As if someone had taken him away,
Searched did I everywhere, oh the pain.
In my dream another gone, one disappearing,
This was not real as I was dreaming.
In my dream, I saw paper napkins floating downstream,
Representing the loss, them going away.
In my dream I awoke, a dream within a dream,
As if I now understood the full meaning.
When I did awaken I felt relief,
They did not die, they were not taken.
It was truly understood, my children were now gone,
There was some loss as they would not return.
My children of whom I loved so much were reborn
Into the adult world,
I’ll forever miss the laughter and play of the young innocent ones.
This is great. Beautiful!
Thanks so much

Watching them glow in the sunlight, tiny freckles beading their cheeks.
They turn to me with revelations and questions beyond my ability.
They open their eyes to the world with a fresh approach.
Never watered down, they own the road they roam and seek out all there is to know.
This is a great (if sad) reminder that cleaning the house is less important than playing with my kids!
Thanks for reading
