Author: Lucinda Lee Tinsley


I dream of wishes on falling stars,
and dream of that magical rainbow I,
and it will take me to a place
where there are no moretears,
and nothing more for me to fear.

I dream of oceans that reach out
and actually touch the moon,
and I dream of seeing,
the snow that will fall in July
and to see in December,
the flowers at bloom.

I dream that the wisps of wind I feel around sometimes,
is actually my mom, an angel in flight,
and with each breath that I take,
I still hear her whispers of hope and strength,
and her gentle lullabies,
and I dream at times that she really did not die.

But my dreams are what keeps me going
and what keeps my heart alive,
and my dreams are what I wish for,
and without them I would be dead inside.
Dreams give us hope for what lies ahead,
and they give us a reason to get out of bed,
and if we hold steady and true
our dreams can take us far.

Dedicated to my mom who lost her fight to cancer on 10/10/1986
