Crystallised Dreams


Playing ‘happy families’

All afternoon

Talking of our cats

With choir club starting soon

Teddy bear hugs

Riding our bicycles in the sun

Enjoying our green ice pops

With triangular sandwiches for lunch

Sleepovers each weekend

Staying up late

Horror movies too old for us to face

With our crystallised young dreams taking place

Ribbons in our hair

Practicing cartwheels

Mid way in the air

With lavender being added to mud pies

No one ever wanted to try

A compass keeping us from being apart

Trips to the shop when it’s nearly dark

Bags of sweets and magic stars

With only one bottle of coke

Which we both love

Let’s play fair

We can always share
