Dream My Son, Dream
by Pili Pubul
Bookmark and Share
  Let me nurture the ambition
of your dreams,
And close your ears
to defeating words.
I know that you possess
the power to overcome
difficult roads ahead.

Hold my hand, my son;
let's walk slowly
one second at a time.
The path goes up,
leading to the top
of the first hill.
Enjoy the challenge
as you look ahead,
rivers to cross
steep mountains to climb.
Observe the wonders
every day of your journey;
open those eyes
to all the alluring beauty
surrounding the way;
open your soul and breathe.

Perseverance is your strength.
Keep walking...I am with you,
observing each step,
each fall.
But wounds heal
as strength comes back.

You are almost there.
Now I see your smile;
Dreams became reality
as your wings expanded
Proudly, ready to take flight.
