“Happy Things” by Lorraine Espinoza
Please enjoy this wonderful poem, written by our wonderfully talented arc Ambassador, Lorraine Espinoza, entitled, “Happy Things.”
Beautiful dreams, I dream of unicorns in my head, just before I go to bed. These unicorns are bright, just want to say, “little one, have a good night” “little one, I want to keep you warm.” I want to make sure your blanket is not worn, and I am so glad you are born. You are an unexpected blessing, I never knew I was getting.
I wouldn’t change a thing for all the joy you bring. It is all the little things you do, that make me love you. Your beautiful face, your wonderful ideas, of the way the world should be. Climbing trees is your favorite thing to do. Fixing your scraped up knees, with a Band-Aid and a little kiss.
Always being there to protect you, that is what I wish. I wish I could do, and nobody would hurt you. Dream deep my little one, and go to sleep, and you will learn your life is very unique. You are special, in your own way; that is what everybody has got to say.
This is something I hope for you, this is something I hope you can do. Be wise and help open people’s eyes, to all the challenges in your life. Help them understand what your life is, and what your life could be. We are all the same, you and me.
