Where Dreams Really Do

It was so long ago
Or was it… yesterday?
Separated by fears
Of love that would not wait

But if I had known
How I would feel today
I would have taken your heart
And shown it a world
Where dreams really do
Dreams really do come true

It’s like a regret
That you always feel in your heart
It’s like a love affair
But only you will play the part
How can I live
When time has left me no choice
But to die or be alone
Because love never found its voice

But if I had known
How I would feel today
I would have taken your heart
And shown it a world
Where dreams really do
Dreams really do come true

There is no turning back, the dye was cast, our hearts met and collided. I to knew love and had the chance to keep it in tact, yet I let it slip through my fingers, like sand I watched it fall to the beach of lost loves.

I have regrets and I live with them daily, however I know I must go on and live my life the best way I know how. Love is painful, love lost cut's like a blunt knife leaving deep wounds that really never heal. I am lost without real love in my life, but thus is Karma. Peace and blessing to you my talented scribe.

Beautiful - I know the feelin; the "if only"... and you expressed it perfectly. Thank you

One thing rings true of your poem...love is only true to itself...that is the selfish aspect of Cupid...We, in turn, in our carelessness, are the victims. Some of us recognize that fact and correct it or resent it while others continue to stumble blindly back into love thinking that Love will not correct the error. Great write! WB

@Vincent - "The beach of lost loves." New hub for you? Regret is a tough thing to live with... we all have them though sometimes I hear people say they have no regrets. I wonder about that.... thank you my friend for your support.

@brightforyou - "If only..." Yes... sometimes we're not ready for the right moment. We let ourselves get in the way... our fears... our selfishness... our dark side...

@Wayne - Hey man.... haven't talked to you in a while. Thank you for commenting on this one. Selfishness is a huge problem for so many people. I struggle with it everyday.

@savanahl - What can I say but that I am very happy to have reached you on this level. When I write something from the heart I don't expect a reaction from anyone and it is very gratifying to read your words. Thank you....

@raciniwa - Thank you again for making me smile and for reading my work.
