A Dream Was All (poem)

Updated on November 9, 2013

To search the world this wonder was resigned

To find the meaning of another day

To find his something hidden far away

To end imagined feeling of dismay

And to this cause he let his passions stray

A dream was all this lover left behind

-

And so he searched the earth both far and wide

Unsure what hidden secrets would unwind

Uncertainty would be his constant guide

To find a treasure reason’s words defied

For this his quest he brushed all else aside

A dream was all this lover left behind

-

And then he turned his search into his soul

Perhaps tis there the spring to make him whole

Some hidden mystic memory confined

In time sublime such silence would he stroll

The ways of stars were paths he would console

A dream was all this lover left behind

-

As wonder wandered puzzle still remained

His heart yearned solace searches had all drained

As toward tomorrows through his tears he strained

He caught a light a cloud had left behind

A gentle smile which hope and faith maintained

A dream was all this lover left behind

-

Now sunsets blesses end to fantasy

In every search together they will be

He found the meaning of reality

And when she asks what brought you back me

He turns to her and to her heart confined

A dream was all this lover left behind

Music only

      Lovely poem. For some reason it reminds me of 'Beautiful Dreamer,' which one of my daughters used to play on her clarinet, but the sentiments of your poem are different - yours alone.
