I wrote this poem for a girl. She was a special girl, and is still a special girl, though she is not in my life anymore. It's about life too! I'm not a full time poet, I just write what's on my mind.
Dreams And Wishes
|by Dan Martos|
I am the sky, he said to me;
I am the Earth, the lake, the tree.
Why do you say this? I said to he.
Son, he said, do you believe?
I believe in love, I believe in wishes;
I believe in dreams, and my ambitions.
You cannot touch love, he said so bold.
But, I can feel it in my soul.
Then he asked, and what about dreams?
I have dreams and dreams have me.
He looked at the sky, smiled, and said,
I am the fruit from which you are fed.
I thought this though. Thoughts filled my head.
When I finished, I then said,
I love the sky, I love the tree,
I love the lake, and they love me.
I love the Earth and up above,
I love to be happy, I love to love.
I make a wish, a wish so real,
I wish for the love of the wishing girl.
I dream my dreams till my sleep is done,
I dream to be with the dreaming one.
And when I have her, my love won’t go,
With each new day my love will grow.
I will continue to love, though I cannot touch it,
I will continue to love and always feel it.
Do you see my point, my puzzled friend?
I will love her to the very end.
He smiled at me, then turned away,
He left, but would return another day.
I laid and watched the clouds above,
Then I made a wish, a wish for love.
