Faded Dreams

Updated on March 3, 2011

Picture of flying white dove ... | Source

My heart weeps
for all that was...
for faded dreams
and just because...
for the yearning of
a heart that's true
that burns beyond
in silent hue.
for hopes of love
once burning bright
that paled beneath
the cloak of night.
a flicker caught
my lonely eye
within a flash
to bolt and fly.
for bittersweet
elusive love
that lit, then flew,
a graceful dove.
My heart, yes, weeps
for many things...
for dreams that fade
and fleeting wings.
