favorite poems

The following is a poem written by my husband. I think it is very true and wanted to share it here.

Dreamer of Dreams

I'm a dreamer of dreams. A writer of song.
Please take my hand and you come along.
For what you've become, You shouldn't be.
Be a dreamer of dreams and set yourself free.

Be a dreamer of dreams. It's all up to you.
Just look past today and make yourself new.
Don't limit yourself to what they think you are.
Be a dreamer of dreams and follow your star.

Believe in yourself ~ if you dare not you don't.
Just trust in your life ~ if you cannot you won't.
For dreams can come true for the common man.
Have faith in your God and His plan ... for you.

Be a dreamer of dreams. But don't hesitate.
Just reach for your star before it's too late.
Now don't you grow old and then hear yourself say,
I once had a dream. But my dream slipped away.

Be a dreamer of dreams ...
Copyrite poem by Joelon Wilson



SHIP OF DREAMS

My friend, you're setting sail today
To seek your dreams and find your way
And though I grieve to see you go
We all must seek our dreams, to grow

So as the mist doth fill my eyes
I wish you well and realize
Without a dream, life is naught
A wealth of lessons, still untaught

I wish fair winds and mental peace
As your life heads to uncharted seas
And may the dreams you dare dream
All come to play and reign supreme

I bid farewell to you, my friend
And pray that we shall meet again
And that life's paths again shall twine
As your ship of dreams, sails close to mine

Hi Shirley,

So glad you joined the blog world!
I would love to add you to my favorite places list on my blog if that's o.k. with you.
