I Used To Dream Dreams

Updated on May 2, 2015

I used to dream dreams

I used to know how,

I used to sing songs

You know it somehow


Winter is here

Changing the light

I'm ready to go

I'm feeling alright


Some say it's sad

To turn out the light

I'm happy to say

I don't need to fight


I'm not sleepy now

Though it's late in the night

I'm eager to rise

With the dawn's early light.

      Breathtaking and pure, I could see, touch and feel it in the air. Thank you my friend for an enlightened turn. Darski

      Thank you, Darski. That is good to hear. I enjoy the humor of some of your hubs and I like your compassion for animals. They sure are getting the crumby end of the deal. Have a good day.

      It's very optimistic. And at a time when things are dark with my life. Thank you.

      Hi psikotik1. I hope the darkness lifts. I have a friend who has nothing but terrible problems but she always works things out one way or another even though she is very worried while in the process. Her world holds together well even though there are extreme challenges constantly. I bet you keep one step ahead of it all, too.
