God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world. ~C.S. Lewis


Always a dreamer,
Forever a dream.

An optimist, adventurer,
Everything I hope to be.

Always treasuring
Life’s endless beauty.

Forever hoping
More will have that discovery.

Sometimes reality
Puts a limit on these dreams.

It holds them back
With a firm, restraining hand.

But now, one more dreamer
Is free to dream forever.

Always a dreamer,
Forever a dream.

Goodbye for now,
Sweet Dreamer.
Until you meet me in my dreams.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem this week when my aunt suddenly died. I read it to her right before we had to pull the plug on her life support. We all are going to miss her and her dreams.
That being said, this is the first poem I have ever actually tried to write.

  I'm sorry for your loss. Awesome poem though! I like how it seems like it's describing your aunt.

This poem is so incredibly moving. Lovely work. Truly captures grief without coming off as emo.
