A Dream (poem)

Updated on December 12, 2013

A dream

A time

A happening

Came together in their way


A normal child

A normal life

A far off make believe

Where put upon display


And all around

And people heard

And hidden hopes they saw

As he became the meaning of their day


He met their needs

He was their dreams

He held the stories in their hearts

This reason to put troubles all away


But dream

But time

But what once was

Heavy in each fallen heart would weigh


Each memory

Each crystal toast

Each Joy he roused out

Where hidden in vast mirrors of dismay

Music only

      I liked this. Took me through a bit too quickly and I wanted to stay in its rhythm some more. That picture is incredible.

      I like the style, too. We all have various facets of ourselves, the things the world perceives, the hidden things we are.

      Loved the change in style. Well done, Martin....a bit autobiographical?
