I sauntered down the same path today
Retracing every step we walked, it seems like yesterday
Tugging at your finger and scrambling
“Race you to the brook!” I began running.
Your laughter rang in my ears
And I watched: smiling through my tears
“Slow down silly!, ” you scolded
The shine in your kohl lined eyes when you said that made me delighted.
Brushing a strand of your long dark hair aside you looked at me
I’m glad you’re here I said, happiness bursting within me
You were my little universe and you promised to always be
Where are you now .. I haven’t stopped searching, don’t you see?
You were real, you were here.
Or were you just a dream within a dream
That I can no more see ?
