In The Space Between Sleep...

In The Space Between Sleep... 

Stars have always called my name,
I could hear their twinkle whisper,
Way above the bright blue sky,
Where I always thought I belonged,
Soaring and dreaming up,
Always up.

I dreamed of a Blue Angel,
Even before kindergarten,
Carrying prayers into the sky,
Jealous of birds,
Even butterflies.

Some nights I swim the skies,
Silver pool so fast,
I am a dolphin of the night,
Playing with bubbles of light,
Always searching,
Full of wonder and hope,
Something even this year,
Can't pull to the ground,
I remain aloft always in my heart.
