I dreamed last night I had a castle

way up in the sky

With a door like a big red heart

and on it a bright white sign

The sign was for the children

who needed such a place

Where Kindness was The Ruler

and Love his lovely Mate


Where children's hearts had time to heal

where love and kisses lived

and words of kindness with laughter

Made children dreams fullfilled


My castle in the sky!

To keep the children safe

Where sorrow and sadness 

were never found

For Love kept them away

My castle in the sky!

Where I wish I still lived

Filling their little hearts with love

My most wonderful wish

    Lovely and thought-provoking, all the more so for the delicate nature of the castle's precious occupants as well as my having lately mused afresh on Ian Van Dahl's "Castles in the Sky." There is an end to this world and all its evil, meantime our refuge, as you appear to endorse, is the LORD Himself, Who made the little ones and to Whom we cry for their salvation and shelter, you know? Beautifully rendered with excellent imagery and accompanying illustrations. Thanks for sharing.
