The dreams inside my heart are never ending.
I find some comfort in the people I’m befriending.
I look all around to find a solution.
Maybe I’m just part of human evolution?
I think there is something locked inside the dream,
It just seems to flow, much like a rushing stream.
As the water passes by, I peek around the bend,
When I view before me, my heart begins to mend.
I can’t always wrap my mind around this,
Moments of despair, wrapped inside of bliss.
Sometimes they create balance inside of me,
Opening my eyes, so I am able to see.
Some I get while some I don’t understand.
Sometimes like a stranger from a far off land.
I gather up the pieces, hoping they will fit.
The answers are illusive on this bank I sit.
I watch as the water washes ashore,
I see in my heart I desire some more.
The ripples are like changes, sparkling with light,
Reminds me of the stars that appear every night.
I think I see something through the corner of my eye,
Perhaps it is the life that simply passed me by?
I seem to wonder often where the time just went,
A penny for your thoughts, For I only have a cent.
