What Promise (poem)

Updated on May 11, 2013

Amid those special moments set aside

There drifts a wonder who had been the day

A dream of others happening his way

What promised hopes had rushed to fill this stride

-

Amid some special heartbeats set astray

There drifts a tear for all the thoughts he tried

A dream or two which others have applied

With promised echoes of his yesterday

-

A curtain casts a shadow on his show

A silence he had left so long ago

Allowed drift in ponderous never know

-

Amid last kisses moonlight did ignite

There drifts some music of a lasting night

What promised dream still dazzles the starlight

      That's right, "The Best is Yet to Come" as long as one is alive, there is hope for the dreams to come true.

      God bless, Faith Reaper
