The Gift of Dreams

The sun was already high when I woke up this morning
Feeling lighter and better than I felt yesterday
Weather was nice, sunny, warm and bright
Which helped to lift my mood from its depressed state last night

I had a good sleep and I dreamed of my mother
I remember how she looked in my dream
She was healthy and full of life
But I can't recall what we said

I am thankful for the gift of dreams
I get to see her again and feel her loving presence
Even if only for a fleeting moment in my sleep like last night
Somehow dreams comfort me and fill the longings in my heart
When I miss my love ones on the other side of life

It's been twelve years since she left us
And I still miss her touch, her warmth her uncomparable love
She taught me every essential things I know about life through her experience
And from seeing and watching her through the years even when I was still young to understand it

I am the only girl among her seven children
And we never had enough time to spend together as mother and daughter
We only had thirty years and in between those years were period of sepation
When I was away from home and later got married and have a family of my own

The best years we had was when I was still a child growing up under her wings
Twelve solid years of togetherness
I was her little confidant, her avid listener, her number one fan
I saw her through my young eyes
How hard she kept our family together
How fierce her love was sometimes

Part of her is living in me
I inherited her soft heartedness, her warmth, and her strength
I wish I could dream of her everynight when I sleep
And tell her how much she is loved and missed
