She Has Dreamt

In the early hours of the morning
She lays restless in her bed
Two and a half years overseas
And she is 10 days away from coming home

For the past two years
She has dreamt of her mother's embrace
Warm, inviting and so full of love
And familiarity

She births a smile
Imagining the airport
Walking through the doors
To her teary loving Mum, arms open wide

For the past two years
She has dreamt of playing
On the white sand beaches with her sisters
Giggling and laughing with them both

For the past two years
She has dreamt of leaning
On her Dad's shoulder,
While they watch Lord of the Rings together

For the past two years
She's dreamt of her home town,
Driving up the Range, the green rolling hills
And smelling fresh rain in the mountain air

For the past two years
She's dreamt of endless Summer days
Walking and laughing with her best friend
The now bride to be

For the past two years
She has dreamt of the white sand beaches
The blue ocean and skies
The freedom of her home country

But...

For the past two years
She has also lived
A life of challenge and change
Experience and joy in a country she will always love

For the past two years
She has grown, into a woman
No longer a girl
With hair longer and wilder than ever before

For the past two years
She has made friends who've become family
Moments that have become memories
Experiences that have become growth

For the past two years
She has contemplated, yearned, created
Laughed and cried
For the life she so wishes to achieve

And...

For the past two hours
She hasn't been able to sleep
So she writes and she wonders
What amazing things are coming next...
