Dreams For Your Children


I dream of you
with your round, brown eyes
which are always
looking past the sand in your hands
I wish you could focus
on the well in your midst.

I dream of your children
embracing life with both hands
with the eagerness & trust of children
towards a peace you can’t

I dream of your
when you learn of a love that
overcomes all you’ve been
(lied to)

You, my sisters and brothers,
may not now see what I see
but I will dream it for you.
