The Girl Had A Dream - Poem by Khairul Ahsan
The girl had a dream,
A mundane, commonplace dream.
A dream to jointly build a nest
And live with someone quietly possessed.
Someone, who wouldn't find her faults,
Or show his red eyes, or scold.
With him she would raise children without fright,
Children that she would conceive in great delight,
Who would brighten her home and somber life.
A dream to be a loving mother and caring wife.
She would never be harsh with them,
Not too protective, nor possessive,
She would watch, like birds watch their nestlings,
And bid them goodbye when they take their wings.
Yes, her dream was just this much ordinary,
She wove this dream as a child so solitary,
As she never found peace at her home
Where her parents squabbled so off and on!
Her home was a place forlorn of love,
That made her seek love and peace like a dove.
