My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

Little girl, Little me

Little girl

Me, aged 4

…Little me

Sunshine soaked comfort

Caresses tender, innocence

Salt tainted sea breeze

Augmenting parched desire

An inner thirst

For a want, then unnamed

…Yet secretly possessed

Gratitude exudes

For a pink bunny to hold dear

Your sweetness echoes

in floral strains, near

Such reassurance

In recognition

….A glimmer of me

Caught dancing


Shadows of you

  1. Ahh…that’s really sweet, Colleen! You were quite the cutie-pie back when.
    You’ve come a long way, and you’re a beautiful Mom.
    Happy Mother’s Day to you!

    You’ve changed things up here, and I like it!
    Be good, and take care! Hugz, Keith

  5. I love you, you are too cute and wonderful. I would have loved to have been blessed with a daughter like you. It would have been glorious.

    • Awww…Sara, that’s so sweet 🙂 Yes, when I look at the little me I think of my little girls and ponder how much my mother missed out on….

      • What did I say in “What If?” A million mothers would have given a limb for a daughter like me only not mine.
