This post is to share a poem I thought fit the Writer's Island #24 for 2010: Envision.  I thought my poem Dreams  would be fitting to share.  Hope you all enjoy.


My life has been a life of dreams,
Dreams that could never, ever be,
Yet you've brought my dreams to reality.

My life has been a life of dreams,
Of a love filled with understanding,
Of a love that is true and undemanding.

My life has been a life of dreams,
Of a love that comforts when in pain,
Of a love that is looking for no gain.

My life has been a life of dreams,
Of a love which gives an encouraging word,
Of a love where trust and honesty are assured.

My life has been a life of dreams,
Of a love that is giving and forgiving,
Of a love which shows the joy in living.

My life has been a life of dreams,
Of a love that is there when the going gets rough,
Of a love for which there could never be thanks enough.

My life has been a life of dreams,
Thank you for helping my dreams to come true,
It's because of the little things, I love you.

"Mom," thanks and I love you!

Did you write this before your mom passed? If so did were you able to share this with her?
