Caught Up in a Dream

Alone in thought, a man he stood
next to a pile of rotted wood,
and through the path of cobblestone
He walked and walked and thought alone.
A lady joined him by his side
and next to her his joy and pride.
His daughter and his soul on fire
brought him back from man's desire.

People often spend hours dreaming up surreal experiences, imagining what it would be like to be inherit a fortune from a long lost relative, win the lottery, or become rich and famous, but real life always pulls them back. You've got to appreciate how you're living, or you won't ever have a life.
