I stay up in my dreams throughout the night
Hopelessly striving with all might
To add a shape or maybe a face
Just a bit of colour,just a trace?
I walk barefoot on the dewy lawn
Feeling the cool breeze at dawn
The grass is green they say
And red turns the sky at this time of the day
I nod my head as I fondle a flower
Soft & fragrant in the early morning shower
And suppress a sigh when I hear them claim
“But you make a far prettier dame”
When I’m home I walk upto the looking-glass
Jealousy surfacing again,but I let it pass
For in some hours I’ll bid the bandages goodbye
And tomorrow I’ll stand here to look me in the eye!
