Your Dreams (poem)

Turn on your dreams across the waiting sky

The day has dawned to see a rare gift fly

Though hidden voices try to hold you back

A heart beats hope which nothing can deny

-

So many stars so many flowers bloom

Yet only one this time and place assume

Just one more face to lose among the crowd

Or guiding light a scent of hope’s perfume

-

So much of life is seasoning of you

Great things may grow of smallest thing you do

Or simply sit and leave to someone else

The time is ticking on a moment true

-

Those voices with their shouts of some escape

To clouds which no one else has seen before

They breed upon your emptiness and doubt

These tears await to see your darkest night

-

Turn on your dreams and let that stranger go

Let all who touch you bask amid your glow

Let gift of you inspire another’s flow

The world is blessed through dreams which you bestow

Martin, this is inspiring, motivating, and simply beautiful. Dreams are what we're made of. To let them go does a disservice to us and those we may touch.
