Theater Of Dreams (poem)

Updated on January 9, 2014

It was late into the evening

I am closing the last door

Drifting in once more


Now that my friends are gone

Leaving me alone with the Joy and the tears

The echoes of the music

Which filled hall

Whose glorious walls

Where famed by all


Oh the time

Oh the thrills

Oh the magic

The constant cascade

Of moments we made

Gone one by one

Joining the starlight of dreamers


And there was her

If my life was not blessed enough

There was her

Behind every creation I conjured up

There was her

The reason for heartbeats

Each Joyous repeat

As problems retreat

Was her

Was her

Was her


But it was closing time now

It is late into the evening

I am closing the last door

Drifting in once more

A glorious before

Each precious instant

Cast into the memories of moon filled nights


And there she was

A specter in a shadow of a moment

As beautiful as I can remember

Forever my soul bears her ember


And as I lock the final door

To this palace of past

This theater of dreams

Were real once met it seems

She offers me her hand

Whispering let’s do it over again

As I reached out and cried

      The play is over.

      Only the ghostly shadows remain......the music a distant memory.

      Would you do it all over again?

      Very deep and searching. Sounds like the ending offered a return of beauty though.
