Little Girl’s Dreams


Once there was a little girl

Who dreamt of her life to unfurl

She envisaged her life as a story

Within her head, how her world would be


She lay demurely and held a red rose

A symbol of her future beaus

Such innocence she couldn’t realise

How her hope would never materialise


A single red rose

From which a passion arose

A dream that never was to be

A nightmare that turned into reality


A child with visions, expectations

Greeting her future with sensations

Her life could have been so pure

But life shattered that, on a detour


How could she have possibly known

That when into a woman she was grown

All her ideals would be just a past

When eternal happiness could not last


A single red rose

A passion that froze

A dream that never came to be

A nightmare unleashed and free


The simplicity of a little girl’s dream

Never to be realised in the grand scheme

If she could turn back the hands of time

And live her life in her words and rhyme


And now that girl into a woman has grown

Finds a photographic treasure of her own

And now that rose that she held and cherished

Has long since died and perished


A single rose

Clutching a red rose

With a dream that a little girl held

Nightmares could not be dispelled

Oh Andrea this is one special write and you have done a great job of creating the imagery to go with the picture. I hope though you have not truly given up on your dreams, for with the spring there is always a new red rose to be picked, savored and hold in your mind as a reminder that new dreams are being born even if old ones may fadeout. You have a wonderful talent and are special.

Our innocent childhood dreams truly were marvelous, Andrea, as was this little girl's - and for most of us, they didn't turn out as we had hoped or envisioned when we reached adulthood - yet, we go on, and do the best we can.

Everyone was born innocent, have big dreams...

Never let your dreams die, your dreams are your wealth.
