Sonnet - Vi (O Gentle Heart, Hold Fast To All Thy Dreams) - Poem by Valerie Dohren

O gentle heart, hold fast to all thy dreams
Mind them ever safe within thy keeping
For love may never render what it deems
Nor save the fragile breast from ever weeping.
Forever may thy fantasies remain
To sweet enchant and charm thy soulful heart -
Whenever all is lost they yet sustain
With joy, with hope, with love to thus impart.
O drift along illusions' misty way
Reality's dark face to thence deny
Within the realms of heaven thus to stay
That never shall thy heart be wont to cry.
….. Relinquish not thy dreams for earthly prize
….. Lest thy reward be set in downcast eyes

    Life may not be that sweet as we deem it to be, still hold fast to all our dreams and fantasies and hope our dreams will fruition tomorrow.. tomorrow.....! ! Beautiful, Valerie! ! (Report) Reply

    Nice one Val, I guess dreams help us all at some time , even though many turn out to be just fantasies and illusions. (Report) Reply
