“ And I Dream"

I can see within the sun
And the shape of a cloud
The silhouettes

Of life
And I wonder
If you can also…

See silhouettes

Of future dreams
Etched on horizons far
Can you hear the chord’
And melodies

Of the wind
Dancing through the leaves… of an old willow tree
I can hear the sound of laughter
The harmony of love
Symphonies of happiness
Through the night
And I wonder…
And I dream the wonder
And I wonder

If this is only a dream
Or the pain

Of saying goodbye
And the sadness of loneliness

As the only flames of hope
Still dying… in useless circles… and useless routes
Wandering around trying to find

The road to nowhere…
And I wonder…
And I dream the wonder
And I wonder…
If it was only a dream
The campfire flames
Forms silhouettes of longing
That fades away… till only
The heat of the coals stayed behind
As the heat of the coals…
Still brings back the longing
The dreams… fade away
And finely dying
With time!!

A very sad and melancholy write. Yet there is some unique beauty in saying goodbye. As it also means we have cherished the time given us. And the memories valued…
