To Dream A Dream - Poem by Conúil Duffy

Have you ever had a dream
that was so perfect that it hurt?
'cause you wanted it to be real
but it was just a fantasy

There was a time when I had one.
The Dream I had was of a girl.
It made me sore to think of her
because without her life was wrong.

The light seem to be not as bright.
The sun looked as if it had died.
Happiness seemed not to exist
because sometimes it hurts to dream.

    Nah Conuil, I have to disagree...for me, dreams are all part and parcel of my reality. Never regret the moment, just enjoy it. 9 for the doubt. Smiling Tai (Report) Reply
