Keep Dreaming

afraid of what I would see
if I peeked inside,
I became deaf and dumb
to the emotions that my heart cried out;

the day slowly slips by
bringing nothing to conclusion
bringing nothing new to light,
it slowly dragged on the inevitable;

with every step that I take,
my confidence grows even further
allowing me to take on everything
allowing me to acknowledge my emotions;

like a wild fire, that went out of control,
the madness around me morphed from a
child with no fears, into an adult
scared to accept what my hearts cries out;

it seems that I knew this forever,
lying within me, making it presence felt now and then,
like the seasons changing,
my mind changed what I once thought was forever;

time slipped so quickly,
and before I could take a breath,
I realized it’s now or never,
I realized how much I had lost;

shrouded by the safe haven I built around me,
I failed to acknowledge the beautiful sun shining outside,
I failed to notice the chirping of the birds,
I forgot to laugh and smile enjoying the things I like to do;

as each wave of emotions came in slowly,
under the bright light of the moon,
I stood here hypnotized by the glow of
what life still has to offer;

amidst the chaos of my soul,
one dim light still flickered on,
strong enough to prevent the
darkness engulfing my soul completely;

strong enough to keep the
river of dreams flowing
to keep dreaming of a wonderful
beginning for you and me together;

They say dreams are the windows of the soul–take a peek and you can see the inner workings, the nuts and bolts. – Henry Bromel

One must desire something to be alive. – Margaret Deland

The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams. – Elizabeth Gilbert
