Many Dreams Just Never Come True.
But, 'Dreamers Never Die'.
'Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder'.
Perhaps, This is Why! ! !

Poet's Notes about The Poem
It's been said to me 'You're nothing but a 'Dreamer'. Well, My reply is & has always been 'Without people like me, you'd be living in the dark, & still riding horses'. Having lived in poverty for so long, diminished as well, for various reasons, I've become intimate with the Quote, & I'm not sure who said it...'Dreams Die Hard'. As I watch someone else more able, develop inventions & I've conceived, sometimes years before....This poem dropped out of the 'BLUE' in it's entirety around 1983 when I discovered Parabolic Mirrors as a natural energy source, having nearly blown up an offshore oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico where I was employed....the Fire Chief flew out and explained what happened..I added 2 + 2 and came up with an solar engine...later on I learned N.R.E.L.(Natural Renewable Energy Lab) developed a Parabolic Trough, which is extremely effective over just about everything else. My version is about 700 times more effective, because of legalities I'm still defeated. Ergo, credence to the Poem.
