the dreams of a poet
by Steve Patterson

Monday, February 18, 2002


i dreamed
the dreams
of a poet.
and while
i was dreaming
life passed me by,
and i didn't
even know it.

lost in verse
and rhyme
i wasted all
my time.
lost in the dreams
of a dreamer,
the pages
of my life
turned by.

i still
dream my dreams,
i still
search for the ryhme.
but now i
write the pages
of the book
that is my life.
