Yet But To Dream Again…


I have a new dream that lives within my heart and my mind.

For what was dreamt afore shall I never, ever come to see or find.

Therefore to sleep with the living I must dream yet again of another day.

I must find new hopes and new horizons to keep what once was at bay.


There is a fair place with sandy shores; palm trees and a warmer clime.

I dream now of buying me a boat to sail across the gulf of new dreams of mine.

I already have a captain named Ed M. who is gung ho and ready to be piped aboard.

I have a plan for earning revenue that will bring peace to many in life’s final journey and more.


There is a place called Punta Gorda which lies on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.

I had thought of Key West, but the rent is too high for even those who have the best.

Yet with my new yacht in place and I serving what I feel a crucial need.

I may even have to hire a bookkeeper to make sure that I not be overcome with greed.


Is there anyone out there that can keep two sets of books????

I am just kidding…after all…I have never been a crook.

So if you can keep books and tally all the cash….give me a call

and I will to you get right back.

Your yacht above is a bit out of my league as a captain, but we can still talk regards what to use...I was looking at a Grady White 36 footer yesterday and thought about this idea of yours...but we could live with something even smaller...anyway this write sounds to be a fun fantasy, though it would be nice if it were'nt such...ed
Reviewed by Lois Christensen
Dreaming like this is bound to come true. It is possible, just work on it and Ed will probably by in his joy to have a job that will be provided by him. You two will sail and abide and live it up and joy will come to you again. Leave the worries behind and get on with new things.

Don't like math; am not very good with numbers. But this is a good write, keep on dreaming, Allen; know you are ever in my thoughts/prayers!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. ;D

Hmmm....don't know how good my math is....but am good with a budget and calculator? If you're willing to train, I'll apply! Good luck with your dream, sounds wonderful!

J. Allen,

Your dream is told so well and yachting on the water sounds great. Just watch out for that last part. You aren't from Wall Street, are you?

Have to be honest, (((Allen))). Math is not my strong suit: allergic to it. Break out in numbers. LOL Dang it. Mind having another photographer?!? Dreams live in these glorious lines, well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
