A Dream A Stream (poem)

A stream

A dream


It’s calling me back

To the beginnings

Fathoms unknown


Yet there I lie

There by its side

As it carries on

To its destined end


As it sings to me

A voice from way back then

Songs of remember when

I sadly say farewell

To the waves which have carried me


I’m sorry we must part

I’m sorry it must end this way

I’m sorry time has come at last

But we made moments

Rainbows of memories

There across the sky


Its waters kissed my hand

Which stretched beyond the season’s bank

To touch the face of timeless friend

In that stroke I shed a tear

A gem of the journey we shared

Bear this gift there to the ocean

Where I will be waiting for you

Very sad but beautiful farewell here. I know you have written since the beginning of water, streams, dreams, kisses, scents and memories, and you explained to me a good while back the meaning of the water in all of your poetry but that was a good while ago ... can you remind me?

The video is the most beautiful video I have seen and such a sad farewell. Are you leaving us or still saying farewell to Joy?

Voted up +++ and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper

'.....I’m sorry we must part

A sad lament that certainly can be felt and understood by many who read this.

And, oh the video took us through the seasons of our life so powefully allowing us to feel the pain.


Angels are on the way this morning ps

I hope this 'goodbye' isn't coming from you, Martin. Too many good writers are leaving HP.

Your poem is sad, yet beautifully written and the video complements your sentiment perfectly.

There are some experiences in life that stand out...they have an existence of their very own.

Hearing this beautiful duet by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brighman is one of them. And, reading original poetry by

Martin, is another. Poetry is food for the soul. And, you share with us, each day. And, for all your efforts, I say thank you.

This is a sad poem, Martyn. I hope you're not really leaving all your HubPages friends. You would be so missed.
