A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill
In our dreams
The world is more perfect than it seems
The pieces to the puzzle fit just right
Love works out when you hold on tight.
Picture perfect a world all our own
Tales and wishes to most unknown
Dreams are like magic when they come true
And when I dream I dream of you.
Dreams make the impossible come to life
A knight with a sword dreamed the boy with a knife
Dreams take us far from here
To where the rain tastes sweet and the sky is clear.
In a dream this all exists
And dare I ask but of one kiss
In a dream it could all be true
What in reality I dare not do.
What is secret, what I keep hidden
In my dreams are not forbidden
Dreams come from the heart and fill the soul
Dreams are the things that make us whole.
Dream a knight riding the mist
Dream of true love’s first real kiss
Fall asleep then you feel
Waking up to the world unreal.
Daemons and sorcerers sent from hell
A beautiful princess fallen down a well
Face a monsters grueling stare
Dreams have the power to take you there.
Come with me to a place our own
Go to where reality is unknown
Come my love, come and see
Dream a little dream with me.
