Rain Willow Dream

(This is a poem/song for a Young Adult novel project I am working on.

I just want to live in a dream
In which I fly away and live with you
In this dream world,
We float far away
Surrounded by those we love forever.
I don’t want to be a mother. I want cats and quiet and you
And just to listen to shoegaze music on cassette tapes and watch rain storms.
***
(Chorus)
This island is part of me in the way the branches sway
How the ocean sings and the gulls cry
You are always near, you are here
I love the way your feet fit in your shoes
And your sweet funny nose
Your eyes change colors in the rain
You’re with me in every way
***
I hope to see them again,  to never feel pain.
I wish to live and dream on this island of quiet and love. It’s made of raindrops and silence.
Don’t you see?
Beneath the gray willow trees I fold up inside
Within a blue cardigan
Inside the pockets are stars, stones, and shells
***
(Chorus)
This island is part of me in the way the branches sway
How the ocean sings and the gulls cry
You are always near, you are here
I love the way your feet fit in your shoes
And your sweet funny nose
Your eyes change colors in the rain
You’re with me in every way
***
Carry the ocean waves
Inside of us as we sneak away onto the beach
Gray skies spill milk into the water
We’ll swim on and on
The rainy sky will carry us home
Through our dreams of rain and willows
