Hollow Dreams

One day soon I'll fly away With no plans to return Just the thought of saying goodbye fills me with concern What if now I've found the one That I've been waiting for Just to see you disappear behind a jetway door Standing at what seems half way through this thing called life I've done my best to be a mom and fiercely loving wife Many things about my life We're not what I'd presumed Disappointments dulling dreams Since early youth entombed. Years of lessons given by The courtesy of life Most of which I had to learn Through deeply saddened strife Changed the things I really thought of, so importantly Landscaping my character With better eyes to see Now there's visions manifesting, Ones about forever We can't believe how right it feels Whenever we're together Is destiny just playing games And teasing my desires Or has she come to richly sooth The scorch of trials fire On the day I'll fly away With no plans to return I hope and pray to see you splay A broken heart of yearn That would mean it won't be long Before my love, you'd follow That I should rest in peace and know my dreams of love weren't hollow. - Jeannie Minor

What a sweet way to describe a commonly ubiquitous emotional feeling. You have some good descriptiveness and rhyming here.

Fly way! Do something new. Learn something new. An instrument, a language. For the heart is forever young. Lovely writing!

I think we all have felt this one time or another. I tell you from experience once it is gone it is not any better. You are always seeking what you had and more.

If we knew what the future held, what would life be? Pretty boring, I'm guessing. Does love ever just leave? I don't think so. even after relationships end we still feel something. If we don't we never really loved in the first place. Right? Any poem that makes one ask questions is a great write in my opinion. A very thought provoking write, Jeannie.
