A Mother’s Dream

20 Apr

Toddler Walking Ahead

I dreamed you were a boy again
I held you close and tight
You clung to me like long ago
Eyes innocent and bright
Then toddling not too far ahead
I watched your every stride
Giggles drifted through the air
My heart so full of pride
But then the dream was over
Reality once more
The man who stands before me
Is marching off to war
Against my better judgment
I’m sad this choice you’ve made
I pray the Lord protects you
May angels come to your aid
So now I must let go and
I’ll trust you’ll be alright
I’ll close my eyes and hope that
I dream that dream tonight
