Get her a dream catcher

Smiti Joshi

Get her a dream catcher..
Let it unfold the ingrained fears that dwell within,
Maybe to know what is behind all the thinking..

Get her a dream catcher..
That clenches on to every soul ripping dream,
The ones that will make her eyes gleam..

Get her a dream catcher..
It shall let her live a thousand lives,
She might discover places and people, all unpriced..

Get her a dream catcher..
She will drown in emotions or she may swim,
But the memories shall linger forever like a hymn..

Get her a dream catcher..
Maybe to unwrap her real worries,
Or she may find herself stuck in the cobweb of mysteries..

Get her a dream catcher..
She will pick her favorite and play it over and over again,
If she happens to show you, keep it locked in your brain !

Get her a dream catcher..
Hope she enjoys the roller-coaster ride that could lead to Neverland,
Or she may find herself by the ocean with a view oh so grand !

Get her a dream catcher..
She could simply be sitting and hogging in a kitchen,
Or lying next to a lost someone with all ears to listen..

Get her a dream catcher..
Just like a good friend it will discard the bad,
Will make sure she is no more sad..

Get her a dream catcher..
For once, she will close her eyes and jump up in the air..
She may forget about all the hurt and despair..

Get her a dream catcher..
Did she find you in there?
If yes, then stay there forever and lay blankets of your care..
She will hold you in her wings of love..
And never leave you with the flying dove !
