Dreams Deferred

Contemplating – Courtesy of G and Cordieb.  Share and Share Alike!
What happens to our dreams deferred?
Unacted upon desires that are seldom heard . . .
Do they wash away with the crimson tide . . .
By the sands of time which can’t be defied?

What happens to our dreams alas. . .
which we sadly allow to simply pass. . .
or hold at bay for a better day
Do they await our return or simply fade away?

What happens when we put our dreams on a shelf?
Do they wait patiently for us to find ourselves
Or do they float away to an unknown dreamland
Where dreams deferred converge and reemerge once again . . .

In the heart and soul of another child-like spirit . .
with the heart to reclaim our neglected dream’s merit
Who will take the forsaken dream and caress its face
And abandon not its saving grace

Allow not our dream to become deferred
Unnurtured; Seldom talked to; Barely heard. . .
For without our love, passion, and concern
Our dream will whither; thus our heart will burn and yearn. . .

Yet the dream will one day find another
Who will embrace that dream like a new found lover
And the dream will lovingly reciprocate
But sadly for us, it will be too late;
Yet to ease our minds, we will call it fate.

~Written Especially for my Daughter Crystal and all you other dreamers out there, by CordieB

CordieB: This is truly a beautiful, and true testament to the necessity of NEVER, EVER, letting go of our dreams, no matter what the age or circumstance……… thanks for this! Vanessa

I’m glad both of you liked the poem. If you have a dream, DO NOT ever forsake your dreams – dreams only come true to those who nurture them while awake! Also, like you girls reminds us, we are never too old to follow our dreams; and do not let go of those dreams under any circumstances! Thanks for the great feed-back! It really matters to me – helps me to hold on to my dreams, per se! PLL, CordieB.
