It is Here…

Linking this with the The Blog Chatter, Prompt Nights at A Dash of Sunny, and Open Link Night at d’Verse.

It is Here…

When I saw it, it shone from far,
Unreachable, I thought that star,
But with each step, it felt more dear,
The dream I saw, it now feels near.

The world around, I did not forget,
But on that star, my eyes were set,
A purpose found, soon lost was fear,
The dream I saw, it now feels near.

A race to reach first, it had seemed,
Some went soon, yet for me it gleamed,
It was meant for me, that was clear,
The dream I saw, it now feels near.

To take the chance, the time is now,
Nourished the dream, with lots of love,
The words now shine, to me they near,
The dream I saw, it now feels here.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  7. The refrain works like a tug on my reader’s heart. I’m watching with the speaking, feeling the dream come near and near and near… until it’s a reality. And that is wonderful!
