Fruit Of Hardships - Poem by Raven Black and Blue

This is my first sonnet.. My friend inspired me in this poem...

I watch the trees go dance from side to side,
fantasize all dreams of wealth and pleasure.
Your face so clean and nothing else to hide,
I see the soil break loose with green nature.
To lavish me with all your loveliness,
ensures this life I have with all power.
Our stars collide while hopes become success,
We walk the path of gold and gems shower.
As nothing turns to every single thing;
From dust to clay we mold the plans we made
The birds fly high with happiness they bring.
You should enjoy these things while they not fade,
These helping hands are glad to make you smile,
still here for you more than a little while.
