Last night, I dreamt of them three -
Joshua and the two, with you and me.
Playing in the wind so blithe and free …
So warm and real, their skin I could kiss …
The twinkling in their eyes i still see.
They were part of that picture -
That pastel scene we were painting though unsure -
Little faces of our tomorrow, so clear and pure …
Their names had the same first letter -
Blue Jays of our daylight we were trying to capture.
Two boys and a beautiful girl, that was all
We asked from heaven, not that big, not too small.
We promised to give them the stars, I recall …
And the moon and sun from God's gentle palm;
And to heal them in our arms when they fall.
But instead of a trio, we are gifted with one -
As if all the rainbow colors are woven into a son,
Who calls out to a pair of evening stars to share his fun:
Justin, with his little fingers tickling his brother's feet …
And Johanna, with red roses on her hair done.
Love is just that way - i know them without seeing,
i deeply feel them without even touching,
And in life's voiceless disguises … i just hear them singing.
The sea may have washed away our castles in the sand
Yet, the echoes of our laugh and labors stay forever … dancing
In my hand.
