I awaken to
the brightest sun
I close my eyes
waiting again to find the fun.

The dream eludes me
I can't find the path
time to have coffee
take a bath.

All day I felt
something on my mind
elusive
I can not find.

Just when I realize
it's coming back
only seconds
I'm taken aback.

It's almost there
I feel it for sure
I had it for a moment
I know it was pure.

I awaken to
the brightest sun
I close my eyes
wanting again to find the fun.

etc, etc, etc.

oy!!
This was such a strange writing for me!! IT kinda makes you eager to hear what it is that you wait for, and then it ends as if you are bored waiting to remember!!
I absolutely loved it!

Excellent poem, those dreams are so hard to reach at times, most times I just give up on it. Welcome to Passions, I'm sure you will be loved here.

That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

I would be sorry that I took you from your fun, waking you up and all, but for that, we wouldn't have had the delightful read!  Welcome to Passions!
