Sheltered Dreams Above The Clouds

Flying oh so high above the silhouetted trees
in stark of night salvation comes and floats me on the breeze.

I've sipped the sweet nectar of grace and laid forth all my dreams.
I'll likely fall but I won't fail,I'm nourished by moonbeams.

The light begins to filter through as dawn now beckons in.
The weary stars fade fast away and let the sun begin.

So goes the dance of sheltered wishes,destiny unspoken.
A painted sky will heal my soul and fix whatever's broken.

Tenderly I hold these dreams and see them to fruition.
Above the clouds are where they live awaiting love's nutrition.

Now every breath I draw will be succinctly mine to keep.
Eyes that see such dreams of beauty surely cannot weep.

    Thank you so much for this poem in my contest, Deb. There was a simplicity to this piece and its message. And it would've held strong on its own. But, the final 2 lines, magnificent. You pointed out something that few ever see. When we achieve this peace within self, we have no more reason to cry (other than tears of joy) or to allow the past to hurt us anymore. That's what it's all about. It's one thing to become free, but it's another to stay that way, without excuses. A+.
