Desparete for a Smile

7-27-2012	Desperate for a Smile
		More than often I wake up out of a sleep,my world never changes
		Or so I thought until I walked into a dream with a flower,
		At first sight I could feel the freedom of the seeds sprouting,
		The coming of the new age, the leaving behind of yesterday, 
		It was then I knew I could not leave,I had to stay,
		Everyday I watch you -flower, grow tall after spring showers,
		With each midnight moon,the sky's changed it's direction, 
		Bringing chemical changes to the setting sun's power,
		I may have been wrong to have chosen to remain external,
		Because it was then that I missed a smile,it seemed final,
		In my deepest dreams I felt the flowers turn to seeds,
		I watch as bright colors fade,the moon kept you stalling,
		I heard the call of the wild from Autumn sky's pulling time,
		Someone awoke me as I watered my slumbering friend to the end,
		Feeling the footprints erode into lightness,I felt myself smile.
