Golden Dreams - Poem by Aminath Neena

Remember the times we had wings to fly as the dragonflies
Soaring higher and higher
whimsical and carefree as ever
Oh! how we danced with the breeze
You and me, racing each other

Remember the times we used to gaze at the shooting stars
a thirst for simple desires
a hunger for forbidden tastes one afteranother
dreaming of castles and fairies
and making wishes for each other

Remember the times we bloomed into scented flowers
often sharing each other's petals
so that we had combinations of feather
of colours of the spring blossoms
and brought out the best in one another

Remember the times we tasted the sugar cane in the fields
Trespassing in alien territory
Always victorious with no regrets whatsoever
Forever dodging the consequences
Being alibi's of each other

Remember the times we tied the world with the ribbon of our ponytails
you and me sharing a laugh or two
saving the golden titbits for times that matter
giggling and Running on bare feet
being the racing wind of each other

Remember the times we sang like woodpeckers
and swam in the clear sees like eels
you and me sharing so much altogether
as twins with different parents
yes, we were shadows of each other

Remember the times of sadness and grief
how you held me close to you
as we let down our waterfalls together
how I wiped your tears and held your hand
we were strong, being pillars for each other


Remember the times we were inseparable like the skin on flesh
and although some things may have changed
since, with your partner, you have found each other
this, I can say the love we have is guaranteed
to remain true so long as the golden sun smiled, over the earth mother
