Protector of Her Dreams

Ali's tattoo

Childhood memories carved on her heart

The only home she ever knew

Keeper of her story, protector of her dreams

Mint green walls and open windows

Lace curtains blowing in the gentle breeze

caress porcelain dolls bearing witness from dusty shelves

Revisiting summers spent along the shore

when cool ocean waters provided the backdrop

to youthful expeditions chasing the perfect tan

As the sun set over that beachside home

and life moved on, as she knew it must,

the desire to hold a little piece of it came calling

Childhood memories carved on her heart

Mirrored on her flesh with an artist’s ink

Keeper of her story, protector of her dreams
