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

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

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

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