a dream of my daughter

a dream of my daughter

A Poem by Dusty Hamilton

danced in my head no sugar-plum blossoms or ''roses are red'


a dream of my daughter.

 taken away

   but i saw my sister instead


 when i stood up + told her she wouldn't be going

a look of

  a smile

crossed her head


i turned up


when it came to

  my eyes

that she's not

alone on the plight


there sat beside

 my dear little

  sis was another

   i'd mis. for she


 was also a dear sister of mine

and i've come to report

 i was there to protect + look over

  their ship while it stayed, in port
