Hold Fast To Dreams

Hold fast your dreams,
they shelter you through lonely nights,
gently they become the pillow,
that puts destination in your sights.

Hold tight the memories,
the heart ach that burns,
for the one who wins,
is the one who remembers and learns.

Nurture the moments,
handle with care,
for destiny states,
for each heart there`s a pair.

Cast off the anger,
and its deep rooted seed,
remember t'was anger ,
that caused your heart to bleed,

Snuggle each memory,
a warm blanket held tight,
bringing you vision,
guidance, sunlight.

Push away despair, nurture the hope,
so impossible it seems,
but the only way out,
is to hold fast to dreams.
