Throwback Friday, It’s Just A Little Dream, by Ivor Steven

My poem today, is another older one, from over seven years ago, and the poem was published  in the “Drabble” magazine, in July 2017.

It’s Just A Little Dream


I’ve been waiting inside,

For that never-never ride.

Wishing for that little shrug,

To turn into a dream-time hug.

I’ve been waiting outside,

Trying not to hide.

Wishing for that little smile,

To travel one more mile.

I’ve been waiting all-day,

Calling out, please stay.

Wishing for that little heartbeat,

To lay down at my feet.

I’ve been waiting all-night,

For that one-way flight.

Wishing for that little dove,

To glide over my love.

I’ve been waiting, seems forever,

Crying quietly, oh whatever.

Wishing for that little embrace,

To become my last dance.
