Let’s Dream (poem)

Updated on August 30, 2015

Let’s dim the old distracting lights awhile

Those flares that dare to bare another’s glare

To minds which search to find their own affair

And be the reason for a lover’s smile


Let’s drape those windows of the world with shade

From lies disguised to buy their prize of youth

To gentle lips whose whispers press the truth

And follow fragrant scents which they have made


Let’s close our eyes awhile to set us free

From fashioned passion rationed at some store

To hearts which hold a heaven to explore

Our glare of youth restored by you and me


Those flares from lies which fashioned other’s day

They will not stay the day when dreamers play
