On the Edge of a Dream

scent of virgin snow
bathing the night in silence
     my daughter’s footsteps
          echoing on dream’s frayed edge
a yearning heart constricting


I dedicate this to my daughter who is working and living in the UK. Snow scenes always remind me of her and I long to see and hold her again.

    Our son is home from University, when he is home it makes us realize how much we miss him when he is away. It must be even harder when your Daughter is on a different continent. Great poem that all us parents can appreciate.
