Flame

I have a dream about my family:

where I have happiness

and peaceful tranquillity;

where I can come back whenever I want;

where love can’t be counted;

where smiles can’t be forgotten;

where tears are always remembered;

where I can rest when I’m tired;

where wishes are completed;

where someone wakes me up every day;

where I have advice in my life;

where my mum is a pink candle;

my dad is a green candle;

where I am a yellow candle;

where three candles are happiness in a home.
