dormant dreaming

they push me to follow directions
and color all that's in the lines
and I do it while knowing I must always protect
this tiny thing that's only mostly mine

she's new and she's fragile
and she must learn to grow
well within the confines
of the world we all know

she's mine for this time~
but someday she'll go back
and I don't get to know who
will be there to keep her on track

she's fast asleep now, so i'll fall in line
since she lies in her bed instead of my arms
but as i conform, i'm aware of her breath
and i know she's still growing, safe from harm

no one even knows her name
or realizes she's still hiding there
but i know she's a part of me always~
even when she's no longer in my care
