'I stood outside when all was grey, couldn't see a thing
One by one the drops of rain soaked me to my skin,
Took away my pain, gave me back my grin'

Such a Worthy Dream

A book a day or so it seems,

as pages turn,

they can't be seen

This girl a blur,

her brain a whir,

she wears her knitting

just like fur

Just like the fur

that covers her,

a cat is on

her lap or there

Beside her on the blanket brown,

no other person,

can sit down

The man is in his gaming chair,

his eyes below

his greying hair

Are fixed upon

the game he plays,

perhaps he has,

been there for days

The other cat

is somewhere near

She won't be seen

Then she appears

An arrow from

the bow she flies

Gone chasing shadows?

Hunting flies?

Parents just across the way,

one of them

there all day

Keeping watch,

making sure,

keeping eyes,

on the door

Family in close supply,

close enough

but not too close

Hidden when

the door is closed,

coming when

they're needed most

Wish I could wake up to that

What a wish to live for that

Willingness to work for that

Such a worthy dream to have


  1. you can wake up to that whenever you like - you have your bedroom whenever you like you funny boy!
