New Sweet 16 Poem – A Stream of Consciousness
Posted July 23, 2010on:
A Stream of Consciousness
My life sometimes a lonely stream
But smooth and silky, pure and clean
An occasional storm disturbs the flow
Turbulent lessons learned, required to grow.
Yet when with love I look around
The tempest ceases and all is calm
And I think to myself what a lovely life
Daddy’s wishful face, mamma his beautiful wife.
I see grandma and grandpa who came before
Built the foundation of this family’s floor
Brothers and sisters striving for best
Aunts and Uncles, all beautifully dressed.
Friends with smiles as bright as the sun
Fireworks for hearts, always so much fun
But when the long day’s finally done
He’s always there for me, my special one.
So on this day of Sweet 15
I awake a young woman from childhood dreams
And all that I ever needed, took or received
I’ll give back to other lonely restless streams.
