The Dreamer

Today and now I come to you ~
simply me, open view,
a person who, [in common] speak
is probably one, of common, weak.

I write because words come to me
open end, sweet fantasy,
true life, ah! they live in dreams!
only life is what it seems.

To BE, a poet, a writer, of dream
to be complete, or perhaps it seems
I dream too much, I am complete?
Oh dream of mine, I ask REPEAT!

so unique and with a flair it often seems like such a dare, but a poet has a dream so often one can not touch except the poet that dreams this dream. That is why we each or rare we happened upon this dream of our very own. To dream and write is so contrite so we must write to remember of what we dreamed. very nice poem with so much meaning.

A wonderful poem.

I dream too much......you can never dream too much Sunshine believe me I am a professional dreamer. After it is when our thoughts wander that we see magical images that we can translate into poetry.

I dream too much, I am complete?
Oh dream of mine, I ask REPEAT!

Hopeful your dream will become a reality.
wonderful poem.

Thank you all for the interesting replies, but Brian, a "professional dreamer?" How do you become one, let me know, because I think I can apply for the position!

Karilea,
thou art but the sunshine of a dreamy heart...
thou art is but that of a grand poetess,
writing of dreams, dreamt through dreamy eyes...

Keep dreaming,
Enjoy the dreams,
and take care.
