Catching Butterflies - Poem by Guarded Heart

Running through a garden
So innocent and sweet
I see her smile running towards me
My book in my lap, her face in my hands
I kiss her cheeks and tell her i love her
As the tears fall on my face
She giggles and runs off to play
Running through the blossoms
As perfect as her skin
She's chasing the butterflies
As sweet as her kisses

I want to hold her hand
But i know that i can't
She's off in another land
The sky darkens and i hear her scream
I want to save her from her demons
But she can't see me, only reach for me
All at once i scream, as i'm wakened
From this dream, into creul reality

I'm here if you only knew that
She can't keep you for ever
One day i'll get you back
To you i swear that
And together we'll be in that garden
Chasing the butterflies together

>My sister is one of the most precious things to me<

    A beautiful dream poem GH. Sisters have a special bond, too often they drift apart in adult life, but there is nothing thicker than blood, and that is the truth of it. I learned the hard way. I am only talking to one at the moment! lol Grinning at you, thinking your poetry is coming along nicely. Sur Mum, Tai (Report) Reply
