Child Dream


Child Dream

Child Dream

 I long for a swing in a little child's dream
 with  melodious, heartfelt song

I dream of a child, open heart, life to start
ahead days of love and belonging

I believe in a child beautiful and smart
with a sense of purpose dawning

I live through a child with a longing heart
accepting the change of summon

I pray for the child every breath, every step
to see the dream forthcoming

-M. Jacobs

This is very cute. It reminds me that everyone has a dream. Maybe more than one. I hope all the children live out their dreams. :) How sweet.



Glad you liked it. Thanks for reading it. I have a couple of new ones on the childhood theme you might like, as well.

Children are so comforted by the love we give them. We are their guiding light that leads them on the right path, We are their examples. Good right. It is up to the parent to make sure this is done.It is like looking in a mirror.Their refection resembles the teacher the parent.



Thanks for your kind words and for reading my poems.

i can feel the intensity of your emotions. as a parent, many of your views are also the contents of my heart and you have potently expressed it. zaph



Zaph, Thanks for expressing that powerful connection. My role as a mother permeates my soul.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
