Forgetting Dreams

Sometimes it’s harder to forget,
Than it ever was to remember,
Occasionally it’s more difficult to smile and look strong,
Than to frown and let the teardrops fall,
Because even if you can forget the big picture,
You always remember the minute details,
Especially of the life you wanted.
And so we cast our dreams away,
Like fairy boats into deep blue waters,
Sometimes it’s harder to let go,
Then it ever was to hold on

Very true. This is amazingly written, you're very talented,a nd I hope you know that and believe that. I don't know what else to say except that it's wonderfully written.
