the dreams of my life...

,,,,a place of youthful dreams to the last, as dreams are harder to vision as we get old.

the last broken dream




the last broken dream

promises that came when i was young

gave me the hope that created my dreams

the tears that collected at my feet built the steps

so i might reach the happiness i so desperately searched for.

I always kept a smile with me wherever i went

and the laughter would always follow.

the things that made my beautiful world

i kept close and the memories would always comfort me.

the friendships and loves i experienced

i cherished as i knew they could be fleeting

and would someday disappear.

i climbed very high to reach my dreams

and each step i took was filled with anticipation of the next.

whenever i would fall it was easy to get up

to see the next step i needed to take.

as the years went by the steps were harder to climb

but never so large that i could not reach the next.

it was a beautiful world with many wonderful things to watch and it made me smile.

now the lines that appear in the mirror reminds me

that time cannot be stopped and what i loved is now gone.

i cannot see the steps as the clouds are in my way.

i can no longer hear the laughter

and the smiles have walked away.

i see the tears no longer fall to my feet.

they cling to my face and seem to never disappear.

my health is failing and my eyes can no longer see the smiles

or the ones that wore them.

my heart now aches from where it used to be

and my sight is blurred with shadows of the laughter that walked away.

tears i now cry do not fall to my feet

they cling to the lines that show how tired i am.

i dream't one more time with whatever i had left.

i could feel the tears fall to my feet

i saw the dreams that had left me so long ago.

i could see and hear the laughter from all around me

my world was brought back to life once again and it made me smile.

so fleeting it was and now it is no more!...

my dreams now ache from the empty place

where you use to be.

you are a great poet
but I have a failing ...
I can't read beyond 15 lines nor generally compose
as none read
and epicurial poetry is a disease
but then that's just me,
don't take me seriously
and thanks for you maiden commentary
that brings me closer to thee
