    Life's Dream

    Dreams drift in and out of life like the winds across the sky,
    Hoping for a foundation, but we end up asking why.
    We search for things we think we need, and find only things we feel.
    Wondering if they will come to pass or are they ever truly real?
    They take thier place in the scheme of life and take hold of heartstrings song.
    We grab and hold the little bits, some bitterly drift along.
    As we try to find our way in life, we live inside our dreams.
    With hopes and fear we guild our way, making life a reality stream.
    Never knowing what we want, only knowing what we need.
    Hold onto what you feel inside, keep firm your thought and dream.
    One never knows what awaits you. Letting go we'll only die.
    Fair up the shutters in the night, let not the darkness sigh.
    Life is never only fated, lest you allow your heart be sealed.
    Search out the laughter and the tears,. Let love be your truest shield.
    Drown out the usless faded fears, Give not up hope of what you see.
    The dawn brings warmth and promise clear of those many things that may be.
    Brush away all defeate. Dream strong and wild and free!
    Embrace the thing you seek the most. Live lifes dream and come with me.

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
