A Dream Of Evermore: Poem 71
In every child's mind, exists the adult they will become!
'A Dream of Evermore' is about children having the ability and power to be creative and trusting enough, to allow their imagination to guide them in how their world is viewed and acted upon by them in play and in life. The powerful imagination found in happy and balanced children helps to shape their world and develop, or influence their creative personalities and passions. When children are able to grow up being children, completely free from negative influence, they are able to be exactly what they dream to be. Having a healthy imagination and like minded friends, gives every child the opportunity to step into any role and have peers who also believe in the collective role playing that ultimately helps to dictate who we become as people.
A Dream of Evermore is about that journey through one such child's eyes and how he coped in dealing with life's issues, when that role came to him, after the death of his father. A father who had never disclosed who he truly was, within the role he himself had been given as a child and had shared with friends previously unknown by his young son. This poem is fictional and is therefore in itself, a product of a fertile imagination. But please, consider how special the world really is, when we can share such experiences with others and do so, in a way that we can bring them to life, or merely provide a visual glimpse of who we really are, or perhaps, once dreamed to be! Factually, in Evermore and in every child's mind, exists the adult they will become. Consider that fact, when you look into yourself and remember the child that you were.

‘A Dream Of Evermore’
So often they have shone in longer rays
With their sun measured deeply to its core
Though its calming glow seemed lost on darker days
Only passion, fuels the hearts of those, from Evermore
When sentimental silence calls, they will reflect
Upon the subtleties of that beauty seen, only from afar
With clarity and knowledge beyond others view
Beats the special heart, of a special, shining star
Today they stand together as they once did before
Before time here turned them into mortal men
Gathered to farewell a fallen knight of Evermore
Never having known what death was, when they were ten
Great battles fought throughout the worlds of Evermore
The ten, invincible while immersed in their bright light
They ruled through timeless galaxies, with peace and harmony
And visited my earthly world, on clear and starry nights
I never knew why my father taught me about the night sky
How to find the stars and lights that point to Evermore
How he told me great stories in words that seemed to fly
Though it took nine knights, to share his life and all he saw
Now nine stand together, reaching out to this young man
Son of one fallen knight, now ready to learn his true place
Reaching out to become ten again, in light of our Evermore
Invincible in the bright light, oh what adventures we will face
Riding dreams into the waking light, of what we saw...
There, in every child’s special space...
