Natural Born Dreamers

"Still Born" Shh!! Mommy, quiet, quiet she is still sleeping Shh!! Mommy, quiet, quiet she is off dreaming Shh!! Mommy, before you wake her: “My baby sister!” Now look what you have done, you gone and woke her! Please, mommy do not tell her what you expect and will concur. She is silently listening to the unique secret found in every waking minute. Making movements, imposing that her dreams come with no limit. Shh!! Mommy, she is dreaming again, Waiting for another day to end, Hasting the way you count every minute before she arrives. Shh!! Mommy, she is not ready yet. She told me a secret when I press my ear near your nest. She is hesitating the moment for you to hear her newborn cries. She is not ready for you to count her fingers and look into her eyes. She likes it in your womb where it is nice and warm. She is in a dream protected by a place where angels swarm. ~ Dear: Mommy I fell asleep when you sang that beautiful lullaby.. Mommy, mommy, I’m ready to see her: “My baby sister!” I want to play with her- Is she everything we dreamed of. ~ I’m sorry mommy, I do not understand why you cry! I was not there when the angels woke her without saying goodbye. Mommy, why did God call and take her home? Mommy, I am still here, please do not feel alone. Shh!! Mommy, do not cry no more. Mommy, please wipe those tears and show me how to be brave. Mommy, stop, listen, and feel her smile and wave. She will always listen, when you visit her grave. Hi, mommy, why don't you stand by her grave anymore? Mommy, I see you weep no more. Mommy is she no longer asleep nor in dreams? Is she in a better land with no trials and deems? Mommy, now I see everyone’s heart is clear, and no longer stillborn. Mommy, now life must go on, and in it, we will always have time to mourn. ** One more thing, mommy thank you for holding my hand, I am just a sibling, who needed time to understand. by;PD ((for contest))
