Do You Think Old Birds Dream Of Flying

Do you think old birds dream of flying                                                                                              Of Catching one more heavenly up draft beneath their tired wings                                                                 Before they come in for their final landing                                                                                       Maybe dogs and cats dream of playing with children that once loved them                                             And race horses run faster than  the speed of sound in their sleep                                          They  say elephants remember everything                                                                                    And so do I knowing that it's not always a good thing to remember                                                                                         But no matter all is forgiven now in the name of love                                                                  And I will dream of you tonight

    Thank you for suggesting this poem to me. It is stunning! The pleasure to be found in dream and memories should always outweighs the pain.

    Birds will dream till their wings can flutter anymore...so dogs..horses and so human.Age doesn t matter when it comes to love ..nor our tired hearts can keep us from searching.I can feel pain here as if someone used the heart of another and then left it with the wind.Forgivness is a great comfort and new beginnings with the same person or someone else a healer.Your verses carry lots of sentiment.Tnks for reading my humble verse
