Broken Dreams - Poem by Bridgid Patrick

Nothing in the world, it seems
Shatters like a broken dream
It is the ache behind the mean
Of shadows silent and unseen

And in this fortress dream of sorrow
Exist no dawn and no tomorrow
Just hours that cut you as they pass
Like little shards of broken glass

And yet another and another
Sometimes the night is meant to suffer
But look up now and see how far
They light your way like little stars

Oh, if I had a star to shine
For every broken dream of mine
The whole night sky would turn to day
And all my troubles melt away.

    Oh, if only the last stanza could become a reality then this beautiful image would come true for so many, yet these magnificent words serve to highlight the pathos of this perfectly crafted poem - a superb read. S :) (Report)Reply
