What Is A Dream (poem)

What is a dream

But hopes so depending on you

To make all their purpose come true

A fanciful flight

Your wings to ignite

What is a dream


A hidden stream

Of wonders waiting to break through

To change the world you thought you knew

A realm blazing bright

Awaiting your light

What is a dream


No matter theme

Of beauty coming into view

Reason can’t stop what dreamers do

Each wish out of sight

Your will shall incite

What is a dream


Living in gleam

Of fantasies an artist drew

And be that person always new

A secret held tight

Breaks loose to delight

What is a dream


Silently scream

Through magic moments known by few

Of cloudy times away you blew

A star of such height

Makes others unite

You are the dream

I dream to keep alive and I'm keeping the dream alive! Dreaming creates some version of hope, some motivation, even when it's an impossible dream.

Loved it!

Maybe life is a dream within a dream!...I like to think it is a hidden stream of wonders waiting to break through. What ever it may be I'm thankful that we can all dream.

A beautiful thought-provoking poem.

Very lovely and a thought provoking poem!as Oscar wilde says:

For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

From psychologists to psychics, dreams take important place in the discussion. I loved your thoughts.

So beautifully said, Martin. I am not one to recall too many dreams, but they can be so amazing. Our minds can wander so in a dream.

Such a lovely flow of poetic phrase while ultimately ending with the love interest being the ultimate dream!!
