A Life So Real (poem)

Updated on January 30, 2015

A life so real a dream well spent

One wonders where the time all went

Return to stars for just one scent

Why smiles now blossom mid lament

-

A flowered field was love’s assent

A paradise it would invent

And to this cause life’s blessings lent

That every quest brought sheer content

-

Soon all around knew what Joy meant

Forgotten was all discontent

Forgotten was all need to vent

When fate would show its harsh intent

-

The mornings grant a whole new hue

So different from one it knew

When it would lend its splendor to

A life so real a dream come true

      The past has its share of beauty, as well as those memories less treasured. I am thankful that I have more happy ones than sad.
