Dream Stars

Vintage Words


I'm getting too old for dreams

the way you mean it. Plans, future

endeavors, large projects - dreams.

The soul gets weary after so many

schemes accomplished, the uncountable

failures, the proposals left unfinished.


To dream perchance to inhale one

more time is the definition of looking

forward to work to be done. Weary

or not, the soul remembers dreams as

stars reflected from the eyes in mirrors 

and the same reflected hope in the eyes

of those around me.

Oh lady A the last stanza

Oh lady A the last stanza holds a very personal memory in my heart! you have no Idea how this poem resonates in me totally! I knew I was in love while looking in the mirror. i heard the engine of his car humming up the road and I saw that sparkle in my eye as my mouth smiled so wide. it was my dream of knowing real love. since then we have been working on plans and dreams but Im tired now I just want to float back to those uncomplicated times when dreams were sparkles that lit the corner of my eyes... Gorgeous write!!! I can not say how much you have unwittingly drawn part of my soul in perfect likeness! tight hugss.

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS
