Lost Dreams - My Poem About Unfulfilled Plans
We All Have Dreams And Plans But, Looking Back, They Didn't All Come True
When first we meet and fall in love, we are bubbling with enthusiasm and plan all sorts of wonderful things together. But ultimately our boundless energy falls away, along with some of our dreams. Harsh reality takes over. Every day life brings joy, but this may be tempered with hardship.
When we look back, our dreams and plans sometimes came to nothing and eventually, though we may still be happy, aches and pains limit us.
This is My Poem About Looking Back And Lost Dreams
Things change, and we change with them. We start off full of enthusiasm and high hopes, but reality sometimes holds us back. Life goes on, but not quite as we anticipated.
Looking Back - Lost Dreams
Times when they said they'd write plays
Together - but never did
Planned a trip on the Orient Express
Instead took the sleeper to Inverness
Parties and laughter
Fun and romance
The sun smiled upon them
When life was a dance
But night follows day
And nothing will last
It seems we all pay
For our sins of the past
Pain comes with children
Strong love may bring grief
And pain least expected
Steals joy like a thief
Here an ache, there a pain
Syndromes, ailments and twitches
They've left the fast lane
To flounder in ditches
Who would have thought
When those hopefuls first met
They'd be grumpy old codgers
Watching TV in bed.
