In My Dreams

I wrote this poem a couple of days after the tragedy in my town.

I have one mother in mind and the lost child was my sons friend.

No names, no faces, just words!

In My Dreams
By Me

The path of light and love
Has seemed to dim
since you have gone.

And though I shed
a constant tear my love,
I know I’ll carry on.

For when I lay my head down
late at night and fall asleep
You come to see me
in my dreams
and smile so tenderly.

We talk of days events,
Of ups and downs
and highs and lows
I tell how I miss you
Miss your laughter
All this you know.

Until you start to fade
And daybreak leads
into the day.
I smile knowing
that in my dreams
You’ll visit me again.

These moments turn to hours
These hours turn to years
until I see you waiting next to Him with love, not fear.

Oh, how I do look forward to that time,
so far away it seems.

Fear not, my love,
for now I know
I’ll see you in my dreams.

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
