The dreaming damsel

Slowly slowly sleep slaved my senses

As I stretched to sigh away the strenuous day

Slowly the breeze swept away my sweat

As the sky was all set to stage a water show.


Mildly someone kissed me to wake up

As it is my mother, so close with her soothing smile

Mildly she was whispering in my ears, with joy

As it was my wedding day, to dress me a darling bride.


Merrily everyone grouping here and there

As spring was the season inside me and outside

Merrily my heart pounding, and thoughts fluttering

As an unusual tickle inside, when I thought of my prince


Closely my man was nearing me, with his eyes on me

As I stand there in a daze, eyes glowing with

Closely I felt his warmth, a feeling fine and rare

As he hugged and kissed me, ho! see, I am blushing so red!


Gaily I felt as we floated hand in hand to the dias

As in the midst of ecstasy, noticed not my mother’s tears

Gaily if only my father was there to bless me

As drops of tears fled on my cheeks, to drag me to my world


Quietly I woke up, alas to find it was not my tears

As I was on bed, rain drops oozing through the rotten roof

Quietly I was lamenting, a single rain drop marred my joy

As I cherished at least in dreams I would have been married


Slowly I returned to my world, I am no one but an orphan

As I have mother only in dreams, and father long ago dead

Slowly I bowed to God, for the dreams I am blessed with

As for not these dreams, the world is too dull to live in.
