Updated on March 2, 2015

A man lived a dream

He thought exceedingly perfect

He wished its return

But it wasn’t so perfect

After two eternities

      Sometimes it would be nice to turn back the wheels of time, but then again would it be a wise thing to do!

      No good living in a dream! We must have them to aspire to but then life has to be followed in reality.

      Lovely.
