Lost Dreams

She dreamed a dream like any child,

Begging for a magical wand as she smiled.

She dreamed a dream of her favourite toy,

The one that the war did destroy.

She dreamed a dream that starry night

While her brother kept watch, ready to fight.

She dreamed a dream unheard of,

A dream that made her family scoff.

She dreamed a dream unconstrained,

Her pleas were met with much disdain.

She dreamed a dream unlike any other,

She enrolled herself, much like her brother.

She dreamed a dream where they’d understand

As she chopped her hair, strand by strand.

She dreamed a dream she had long wished for,

Years roared by in the cursed war.

She dreamed a dream she had secretly tended,

She married her love once the war ended.

She dreamed a dream that scared her most,

They were still haunted by the Ghost.

She dreamed a dream she always did,

She watched the road, her eyes timid.

She dreamed a dream like every other wife

That her lost man returns to her life.

She dreamed a dream, she always cried,

For the memories that were denied.

She dreamed a dream like the aged do,

She looked away, her attendant withdrew.

She dreamed a dream of her childhood,

She dreamed a dream of all she withstood.

She dreamed a dream of her sons

Was their future too riddled with guns?

She dreamt her last, in that bed of oak,

Her everything lost in the ghastly smoke.

I had come across a theme-Stories of the Lost. This is an attempt on the same. Hope you found it interesting.
