When I was a little girl
Bright cheeked and shiny eyed
Often on lazy evenings
My imagination would flight
I wished I could soar
Like a bird high in the sky
Leaving the bonds of this earth
Above the clouds I would fly
Sometimes I would wish for
The ability to not be seen
Being invisible would let me do
Things nice, naughty and in between
At times I would wish to have
Powers like Hulk or Superman
At times I would like to travel
In a rocket like a spaceman
My fantasies would grow each day
With thoughts of taming time
I wanted to be omniscient
Unravel secrets unknown to mankind
That little girl grew up too soon,
Big dreams lost in the daily grind
Her priorities changed, for imagination
Little time she could find.
The little girl blossomed into a woman,
And a mother to a little baby too
She started dreaming again,
This time about what her baby would do
The baby grew up into a little boy
He wanted to be a bird, a whale, a butterfly!
She would smile knowingly at his words,
Always encouraging him to try
Each night as he lay in his bed
Peaceful, engrossed in his dreams,
She knew that he could be anything he wished
As long as he had hope.
Hope is a flickering ember,
That can turn into a fire
You can turn a maybe to a yes,
If you truly desire
Hope can tide you through the dark;
Make life a kaleidoscope
Anything is possible..
You only need to HOPE.
