Before the End

Sunflowers and dandelions. 
Sometimes in life it's a fine line.
We go outside to breathe the air.
Look around, try not to stare.

The little children play and run.
The girls are screaming, having fun.
Little boys follow along.
Learning the words to write the song.

A bouquet of summer's sweet refrain.
A timeless imprint on your brain.
To carry us into the night.
Beyond what sunshine brings to light.

After all the dreams come true.
But get lost in the dawning dew.
Only glimpses of love survive.
As you awake having to strive.

Finally finding out the truth.
About our fantasy's in youth.
All we wanted was a friend.
And a little love before the end.

I wish to always dream... never to grow dormant in the life stream. True friends are few in a lifetime... I like this thought provoking poem.

Yes indeed, to watch our dreams fade is to lose our vibrancy in that life stream. Thanks for stopping by and reading a couple Debra, Nice to have you splashing around in the soup bowl again. <3

Thank you Natalyn. I just reread it now and it is strive, not stive. Just in case you didn't correct that yourself. :) <3

"All we wanted was a friend. And a little love before the end." - in the end, this is all any of us ever wanted. Bravo!
