Dreaming - Poem by Rameeza Nasim


To escape all harshness around,
I stepped into the valley of dreams.
Where there lie all sorts of dreams,
Waiting to be dreamed.
Sweet dreams,
Enchanting dreams,
Aspiring dreams.
There at the corner of the valley
Flows a stream of Lethe.
In order to dream well
One should loose all remembrance
I sipped the water of forgetfulness,
And was lost in the captivating valley.

Where there were sweet dreams
Of bed of roses,
Pixies with pointed noses.
Of lilies, chrysanthemum and hyacinths,
All in fascinating labyrinths.

Of rainy nights,
Of gallant knights,
Of far away lands
Of valleys and islands

Of sweet love song,
Of Keat's Nightingale's song,
That I always long.

And of kingdom of heart,
Where every end is a fresh start.
Of a die-heart lover
The one that can shower
Endless kisses!

But wait!
I am an aging soul
My dreaming days are over!
Sweetness has been replaced bitterness
Now there is no hopes
As one cant dream
With silver strings,
Now no more springs.
Yes my dreaming days are over
No more dreaming
I should give up all my dreams
All hopes!
I think I will feel better
As proverb says
' Since I have lost hope I am feeling much better'
So should give it a try
Will give up all my Dreams

But is dreaming not the other name of living?
Should I give up life too?

There are not only sweet dreams
That only fuel desires,
There are also one that aspires.
Dreams are milestones
Dreams are divine zones
Dreams are illuminations
Dreams are revelations
Dream on!
Dream on!
