A Dreaming Child


if veracity stings dreams are delight,
i meet those dreams in the dawning night

where memories old, , too old too old
in a coffer stored, never were sold

in dreams I fall, in dreams I rise
in dreams like child I scream and cry

i see those things what I left behind
back in time, where hearts were kind

like a gust of wind in dreams I am wild
in sleep I am still a dreaming child

where memories old, too old too old
we had a silken skin and a heart of gold

in the dead of the night when away lies sun
i am a noble man when my eyes are shun

but things they change when I awake
those mortal dreams, like glasses break

like breeze now I blow so calm and mild
i wonder where’s that dreaming child

    ......dreaming child within us is really lost...call it a result of time or sign of development, we've lost the capacity to dream........and so have lost our innocence.....great write Kanav (Report) Reply

    Children must grow dreaming
    And the grown ups should follow suit..
    It is on the right track that you position your thoughts, Kanav. (Report) Reply

    Dreams are a doorway which often opens straight into an unforeseen wonderland. A lovely poem Kanav, which makes me long for a beautiful dream. May this dream of mine at least come true! (Report) Reply

    Great poem as it speaks to the child in all of us! I wrote a poem awhile back where I am going to post a small portion here because it flows with your poem almost like they are 2 pieces of a universal puzzle.(When you wake up they stop dreaming Freedom is the child within the rebellion of ones soul) It's like the real us is only alive when we sleep and once we wake up that little child goes into hiding because they are so tired of the world the see around them that they would in fact rather sleep. Love this poem man it gets a 10+ from me! (Report) Reply
