The Dreamer (poem)

There by a river destined for the sea

A dreamer awaits a flower to fall

And dance through his heart a moment set free

Paths toward forever will pay for it all


The music of life is there by his side

There mixed with surrender to feelings flow

There with his flower does all hope abide

As passions sublime is kissed by the show


Now ocean of ever waits one more dream

Through teardrops and rainbows endless delight

The scent of flowers brings Joy to its stream

It drinks in the stars which whisper goodnight


As grandeur of always danced in the sun

Dreamer and ocean again become one

This would be so perfect to read sitting next to the moon lit ocean with a gentle breeze and a warm night's air. Beautiful Martin!

Beautifully said. I love the poignant rendering of dreamer and the ocean. My favorite lines are:

Now ocean of ever waits one more dream

Through teardrops and rainbows endless delight
