Unfulfilled Dreams

Unfulfilled Dreams !!!

Still dreaming, after all these years, impossible dreams.
To become a reality that is never meant, it surly seems,

to rise up – like the Phoenix – from the ashes.
A reality, that with my dreams, always clashes.

To let go, to forget, for sanity, this I must,
for the dreams, a reality ?, they are turning to dust.

The obvious has always been there, before me
With all my hopes, blind love, I would not see.

It has been far to long, carrying this heavy load
It is time to move on, travel a less bumpy road.

Oh, to travel, take journeys, find a new adventure.
If age, experience, heartache did not keep one unsure

of ever climbing above all that had gone wrong
and finding a voice, to sing a glorious song. 

Oh, to once again know and feel the ecstasy of love.
To know that one could leave behind and climb above .
