By Priscilla Ahn

I was a little girl
alone in my little world
who dreamed of a little home for me
I played pretend between the trees
And fed my houseguests bark and leaves
And laughed in my pretty bed of green
I had a dream
That I could fly from the highest swing
I had a dream
Long walks in the dark
Through woods grown
Behind the park
I asked God who I’m s’posed to be
The stars smiled down on me,
God answered in silent reverie
I said a prayer and fell asleep
I had a dream
That I could fly from the highest tree,
I had a dream
Now I’m old and feeling grey
I don’t know what’s left to say
About this life I’m willing to leave
I lived it full and I lived it well,
There’s many tales I lived to tell
I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now…
To fly from the highest wing
I had a dream
