Shall I Dream? - Poem by nithya john

To sit in your lap
And listen to the tales
Of bygone days
And fairy queens

To hum
And question in between
The unfamiliar slangs
And unheard phrases

To climb over you
And go riding the elephant
Thump on your back
And lisp the orders

To eat up icecreams
And run along the streets
To laugh in mirth
Upon the swing

To lie in the evening
And listen to your lullaby
To close my eyes
As you rock me to sleep

Shall I dream?
