|She always had a fascination with lions
And used to dream of them when she was a child.
They would chase her and roar so loud.
She would scream but no sound came out.
And she would run until she awakened crying and in a sweat.
Even as an adult, she would occasionally have the same dream
Until she learned more about the meaning of the roar.
At the age of six, she couldn’t pronounce her r’s
Girl came out as gil.
This upset her father, who would sit her on his lap and roar
As he showed her how to pronounce girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl.
His roar half please and half frightened her.
But after practicing a roar she finally learned how to say her r’s.
Many years later, after she met her soul mate,
She understood what the dream meant.
She had to resolve a difficult relationship with her father.
The next time she had the dream, instead of running,
She let the lions come close enough to pet them.
She never had the nightmare again.
