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 .
