The Lonely Dream (poem)

Updated on August 17, 2012

I had a dream and nobody was there

No gentle smiles or hopeful eyes to please

No broken hearts or worried minds to ease

A strange new peace was floating in the air


And as my soul was captured in some breeze

No heavy cares or hopeful stares to see

No shallow lives or promised lies to free

The flowers bloom without a scent of these


Then something shook this shadow that was me

No need to fill or thirst to quell in sight

No hand to hold or world gone dim to light

Was this the grave to claim my memory


And as I dreamed came whisper it’s all right

Could this be song a rainbow had to share

Could this be spring the fount of loving pair

And as I dreamed now someone held me tight

      It is wonderful to dream and to feel secure at the same time! The black and white photo at the end is awesome and so is the poem. Voted up.

      I like the voice in this poetic verse. It's a dream that speaks of possibilities - good ones.

      You shared some beautiful words here my poet. Dreams can manifest into reality, we hope to keep the nightmares at bay and have the beauty shine through. You were able to capture that beauty with your words in this piece, bravo well executed.

      Sheer brilliance! I love 'things' about dreams (I have some very peculiar ones at times!) the ending is superb!
