DREAMS OF LIFE
My eyes were tired,
weary of the sight of the world.
I hid my eyes from the light
and the leaf of a dream silently unfurled.
I was searching full of faith,
of finding all that I wanted of life.
I came across a very old man
breathing sadness from his fife.
I told him of my search
he smiled and gave me a sigh.
He offered my sorrow and strife.
but for my questions
He gave no reply.
Quietly I went on
I came to the middle of a forest
and talked to the towering line of trees.
They could only recall the solemn times,
when I already had peace within me.
so quietly I went on....
I sat in a field of flowers,
and raised my questions to the day.
It told me of my happiness,
but how I got there, it would not say.
Then I came across you
and I remembered our life together.
In times of sadness
you carried me.
In times of peace
you were the peace within me.
In times of happiness
you walked beside me.
In my search for life
You were my life!
