Poets & Artists, Authors & Us

From the least to the greatest
to the best and the rest
We each one and all
Run holding our dreams

From our childhood untill the golden years
We still tightly clutch and grasp
in the palm of our hand
the dressed dreams of the past

Till one day like sand
through our fingers they fall
our childhood dreams
by the wayside now lay

our treasures, our loved ones
many and most now gone
our age of innocence
lost in yesterdays dust

Another sunset another dawn
a friend dies, a child is born
a heart is cracked, and hope runs and hides
like shade hard to find
on a hot summers day

it happens to poets, artists
Authors & us.....

This one leaves me feeling bleak and bereft. I think it's well written and thought provking but not a pleasurable read.

For myself,I can handle casting off illusions,or the exchanging of childhood dreams for new ones,finding contentment in the memories when the reality is no more,but I hope I never stop dreaming,for within dreams I always find hope.
