The Dreamer

                                                                     The Dreamer

                                                  The dreamer sees a different world
                                                  Than either you or I.
                                                  He sees the other side of things,
                                                  And sometimes he wonders why.

                                                  The mind that he is given,
                                                  He will use it well.
                                                  He dreams about how things could be,
                                                  And from his dreams only he can tell.

                                                  He sees a world so different
                                                  That world that comes to him
                                                  For his dreams are his alone
                                                  Since he is lost in them.

                                                  In some ways he transcends this world
                                                  And leaves this world behind
                                                  For when he dreams he’s gone from here
                                                  Which is common in the dreamer’s mind.

                                                  He sees a world of beauty
                                                  When at times this life is tough,
                                                  And even when his eyes are closed,
                                                  His thoughts are clear enough.

                                                  Sometimes though the time will come
                                                  When he sees the other side.
                                                  He sees the dark side of this life,
                                                  And this darkness he can’t hide.

                                                  Oh those dreams that are a dreamer’s,
                                                  Those dreams in life I see
                                                  For I'm the one who is that dreamer
                                                  Who dreams continually.

    I find this poem interesting about a dreamer because I once knew a big dreamer. Describes the dreamer well. The poet enthralls the reader with a catchy story and the structure is sound.

    This is a wonderful poem on a "dreamers world"-- Reninds me of that old Supertramp song... "DREAMER". I think as poets we are all dreamers to some extent-- inspiring, and personal.
