One evening, my daughter and I get mugged
I lose consciousness after being slugged.
After I come around, I don't find her
Down the dark street, everything is a blur.
I shout out her name in the isolation
I run looking for her in desperation.
Suddenly I find her coming towards me
We hug each other as tears from eyes flow free.
In my nightmare, we don't find each other
I wake up and push away the fear that does hover.
The line between dreams and reality does seem thin
One needs to stay focussed, deriving strength from deep within.
