Once and Once Beautiful

A Man Reading

Once, I thought earth was heavenly
Once, I dreamed of beautiful dreams
Once, I sang of the heard fairies
Once, lone on the yellow brick road.

Once, I dreamed of a perfect world
Once, I chased a colour- filled hope
Once, I intruded some still thought
Preying on my mind of hunger

Once, In my innocent-hood days
Once, when love was love so genuine
Once, when trust was never costly
Once, life was always worth living.

Once, No debt or Ransome to pay
Once, No challenge, no ups or down
Once, No mind unrest or dread days
Once, Never afraid, nothing scared.

Once, then I dreamed of undreamed dreams
With my tender heart yet so tough
Days gone by, dreams came and left us
Goodbye beautiful days. Miss you!

    oh, it feels like a death to leave all those dreams behind….
    can we not carry some of it with us…do we have to let them go?

  2. Mary says:

    I hope that there will always be remnants of past dreams that follow one into the present!

  3. Dreams dying is hardship.. Love the repetition in your words.

    i thing if we love life – even when we learn that things are not perfect – we can safe a bit of the wonder– don’t you think…?

  5. Well once.. was once for me also..
    Hope and faith faded away..in all of everything…
    before i knew it..the impossible happened..
    and once IS ONCE ALWAYS NOW!
    AS ONE!
