Treasure Island

Clara Odelia Ciutara


A Long Dream


You know
We are living
There’s a start of this life
And so it has an end

Life is started
And will be ended
Life is a dream
A very long dream

There’re beautiful dreams
And there’re bad ones
We’re dreaming both
That’s why this dream is called life

Dream with laughters and tears
Dream with happiness and sadness
Dream with friends and enemies
Dream with love and hatred

We started it
When we were born
And one day it must be ended
When death comes

You’ll wake up
From your long dream
With God beside you
And start a new one

    'You’ll wake up
    From your long dream
    With God’s beside you
    And start a new one'

    That was very witty. I loved it. Imagine it even made me think when my dream comes to an end. Also the defination of life, a good and a bad dream at the same time, that was so original, i've never heard it before. I give you a 10 for lack of a higher rating in the selection. Beautiful Clara, really beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Hi Clara - a very mature poem for a lovely young lady - good form and rhythm I score it MAX. V 1 V 2 V 5 Life is described as a long dream which begins at our birth and ends when we die. V 3 just like our lives so the dream has 'Good & Bad' and in V 4 'Laughter & Tears' 'Happy & Sad' 'Friends & Enemies' 'love & Hate'. V 6 Gives us HOPE - Eternal life in Paradise (Heaven) with GOD. Well done - Love in Poetry - JOHN. (Report) Reply

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
