The Dream That Sparkled (poem)

Remember the dream that sparkled so

We pledged our love and never let go

Then we were so young what did we know

Of world without care outside our glow


So lost in our love what did we care

So much to give and so much to share

So many hopes awaited us there

So time did test how much we could bear


Soon we found out that love can hurt so

Confusion and doubt had much to share

To bruise and tear at what remained there

Yet in the bleak night there was a glow


We spouted out words without a care

A chance to cause pain we let it go

And what about love we didn’t know

Beyond this kiss how much could we bear


Somehow we found our forgotten glow

Were we that couple we used to know

What happened to them where did they go

Remember the dream that sparkled so

Mh -

You just keep getting better and better!

The changes a relationship goes thru can strengthen or destroy. I see much of my own in the words you present.

Great Job! Up & Awesome!

Nice job. By the title, I thought it was going to be another tribute to those Twilight books/movies. :)
