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.
