Former Dreamer

I dream about my goals in life

I dream about love

I dream about my life

And about who I will become.


I used to dream all through the night

 and even through the day

But with each morning I wake up

My dreams begin to fade


I think about what’s happened lately

I wonder what will happen next

I try to figure out

How my life became a mess


Now I wait for my dreams to return

With each night I go to bed

But all I do is toss and turn

I fear my dreams are dead


A shadow of my former self

I go through the motions of a life lived less

Now there is but one dream that I dream

To be filled with joy and not stress.
