Rainbow princess...

She wanted a story
before going to bed
a glass of milk in hand
i had a long way ahead
in her mind
a journey of my own
she rules my moments
with her overwhelming embrace
her little thoughts,
we enjoy to chase
It is my princess speech time
go on darling,rhyme
on her toes
sweet kisses she blows
"when i grow up
i want to be a star
the one that shines around the moon"
why a star sweetheart?
"they live so far
why do you want to be apart?"
i said
she smiled at me
ran to the window
"I want to touch the sunshine rainbow
you always say
everyone who goes away
turns into a twinkling star
we will all go there one day
I just hope they have some candy
all my teddies and my cat Randy
I would take them all along
you can come and sing your song
I love your voice"
I had no choice
but to hold her tight
kiss her curls
how she was right
inviting her smile to my face
she cuddled tenderly in my arms
the world stops at her charms
hiding both our heads in a book
covered in bed pupils turning in a look
we wished the moon a sweet night
blowing her kisses to the dancing stars
in her prayer,she asked for the rainbow
to come and color her day with joy
by her side i arranged my dreams
switching the light off
i heard the droplets of rain
softly knocking on the little glass window,
tomorrow we will both see the rainbow.

This piece is inspired by the beautiful princess in my life my niece. she brings sunshine to my nights. to you Bella all aunty's love :)

Lovingly tender. You capture her innocence and sweetness well.

"She asked for the rainbow to come and color her day with joy." I always find at least one line in your poems that touches me deeply, makes me smile, or just say WOW!

Wild Rose said...

Oh beautiful inspiration for the sweet princess, you know how much i love kids and you know she's also special to me even if she's your niece. My princess loves it and sends her hugs to you, says thanks for asking her to read it :)) Now she sends a little intsy kiss to your niece and a big pooh bear hug. She says she'll come see her in Egypt soon. Love it darling queen~ xoxo

Abeer, what a beautiful dedication to your no doubt lovely niece. And how touching and inspiring are your words. I hope you read this poem to her, because I'm sure it will make her feel like cotton candy inside. I know what it is to be a rainbow lover... oh, how I know. A dreamer for life, she will be. And with you as an aunt, she will also dream poetry.

Wishing you 3id sa3id. Kol sana winty tayyeba! ;-) Muah!


Brian Miller said...

what a magical moment you captured there with the little one...i love to sit with my boys and hear their explanations of things...they still see the magic that we sometimes lose...but you caught it here...nice one shot!

dustus said...

Beautiful poem and a wonderful dedication. Very touching to discover it was written for your niece. Personal poems like this are great reminders of what's truly important, love and family :) Cheers

Children have such precious ways of addressing life. I wouldn't mind facing rainbows and stars- certainly the candy is an extra!!!
hope life for you is rainbows, stars and moons

Love from one Moon

Dulce said...

tears in my eyes you Rose!

I tell my son how good it is when they pass away, for they can become whatever they like... and knowing he can become a dinosaur and then change again into whatever and fly from one place to another as fast as the light...

How beautiful it is to believe
Shame we little by litte so easily lose hope and faith...
but still can tell them stories...

amazing post Lady!



Neva Flores said...

Tore at my heart strings this one did......All I could think of was my little granddaughter......wonderful!

She is adorable.Love this poem too.

Emmanuel Ibok said...

Sweet work you did here. I feel the connectivity in your words. A lovely way to tell someone you love them. Cheers.

Beachanny said...

This work had lovely imagery and tenderness. Capturing those moments of childhood, always precious, for they are so fleeting more for them even than for us. Telling them things are often lost in the rush of growing up; so much more meaningful that she'll always have this to read. Thank you. Gay

SuziCate said...

Lovely. Children are so sweet and loving, they teach us so much about what is important in life.

TALON said...

Beautiful poem. I loved the innocent truth of a young heart coming out in the poem. It flowed nicely and it is simply a lovely poem. Great one shot addition.

Carrie Burtt said...
