The dream

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true
– Cinderella, 1950

Something is not right when all you can watch are Disney remakes of fairy tales like Cinderella and Snow White; and the only songs that really seem to touch your heart are One Song (Snow White), Someone’s Waiting for You (The Rescuers), A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes (Cinderella), Part of Your World (Little Mermaid) and so forth.

The heart is lonely. Really.

It has been three weekends now since I last saw Nil and part of me aches. I wonder how I’ll ever cope with him going away for nearly two months (and the possibility of a long distance relationship). I’m looking forward to next weekend’s visit down to Singapore but oh, it seems so long now, the wait.


Right now, the heart dreams of one thing and it is to be in the arms of the one I love again…

  1. Cinderella is my favourite fairy tale. And I’ve never forgotten this song. It’s going to be tough for you. Maybe some perkier songs are in order?
