Live Your Dreams

Life is
the long and winding road.

Sands of time
ever moving
shift once again
offering new direction.

Untied hair blows with
the winds of change.
Just the slightest breeze
but enough to tease those
tresses from their
sleepless rest.

She vowed a thousand kisses deep
to keep passion’s flow alive within
the core of her being
in the living stream.

A hand reaches
to brush a cheek
….tenderly
with love.

Smiles cover the sting with a
soothing balm of unspoken knowing.

A sea of sky
stretched arms out wide
before my eyes
as if Heaven’s awake to my needs
there is no sacrifice to
high a price for love
and,

if you want to be a hero
you have to live your dreams.

  1. To live my dreams.. its easy to say but alas, not to live.. I fight on looking for that day.. dreams I find are ageless.

  2. I’m inclined to agree with Pat Hatt, but I did find your poem a real joy to read: very accomplished and the language beautiful.

  3. Woop Woop!!!! Love that last line…..I wish I could be more of a hero…I am only a herotomost…lol. Great writing, beautiful stuff.

  4. I think the mark of good writing and meaningful words comes from your readers…good writing conveys different ideas to different minds. Your readers have picked what caught their eye…
    I fell in love with
    “Smiles cover the sting with a
    soothing balm of unspoken knowing.”

  5. “if you want to be a hero
    you have to live your dreams”

    That’s it, truly the punch-line, no two ways about it. Live your dreams and achieve wonders. Great thoughts, Bren!

  7. So true and beautiful. I especially like-

  10. I agree in every way, but the reality is sometimes it just isn’t possible, as you have to live and to do so you need to work at some crap arse job..haha

  11. It certainly is… “Sands of time / ever moving / shift once again / offering new direction.”
    Your thoughts roll very smoothly, I enjoy that very much.
    Best, M.
