A poignant dream, deep in my sleep
I am walking on a pathway of light
that glistens in my eye.
Perhaps they are not stars,
And shines down upon my feet.
On a white soft like cotton where I past
a garden of flowers is I see,
like a paradise that we are dream.
Violins playing, and
melodious music I heard,
that softly spoken to my heart.
I heard giggles, children laughing
And they were running towards me.
They held my hands,
their faces are so inviting
their tender smile that stirs in my heart.
I ask them, where were we going?
They look at me and smile,
I looked at the distance and saw
A familiar faces that I haven’t see
For so many years, my beloved parents
waits for me with their open arms.
My tears has begun to fall
Once again I was in their presence
Welcome they said.
Come in and rest in our shoulders.
Sunlight kisses awakens me
That I thought I was at the heavens door
To see my beloved ones.
One sunset I will see them again,
