My Sweetheart

My sweetheart lies in bed

Her blonde hair spread out over her silk pillowcase.

What will she dream tonight?

I wish her Akhal Teke horses, golden in the sun

Playing chase with them, loving them,

I wish her dreams of dog friends, old and new,

And in this world where dreams are true,

I wish her health, legs that run, arms that reach,

To touch and stroke and love and dance

And be all she can be.

    Nice work Ruth! 😊 I am a fan of questions mid verse. You feel like you are partaking as opposed to a casual observer.
