Dreams Of A Father

By Abasiama Udom

Dreams Of A Father


I dream of flowers and a song

I dream of father coming home

It is my nightmare, not a wish

As long as he stays away

All like round the virgin is

Tender and mild; 

I do not sleep again,-I do not dream.

I dream of mother packing bags

Of my brother laughing, free

This is my wish, my prayer

Let me dream it again

All is right with the world
