Daleen Enslinstrydom (25-02-1967 / Springs, South Africa)
Just a dreamer
To me you are more than just a dreamer
and your dreams are like messages in a bottle
that finds a way to express feelings and hope.
These dreams are like wishes in a wishing-well
and to others they may seem futile, as time wasted
but to you they are like projectiles
that flies into the new tomorrow
as if you want them to bloom like early spring flowers.
To you dreams are like promises
of a better future,
an escape from the bareness
of yesterday's that are past.
Your dreams are like stars
that you are able to see
but you do know in your heart
that they are impossible to reach
unless you make them your goal.
You are my dream and my dreamer
and together our dreams are like water
that fills up the ocean
and without boundaries
with a splendour and a vastness of its own
but still we can get lost in dreams
and this is the truth about dreams and a dreamer,
as sometimes life can be lost within a dream.
