When Dreams Stand Tall

When Dreams Stand Tall

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

When Dreams Stand Tall


Far and wide,

Stretches the sky.

A covering over all

As dreams stand tall.


Reaching up to the starry host,

Daring against the odds, to hope.

Spiritual eyes set

Until all is met.


Towering to the heavens above,

Only looking up.

Dreams grow and mature

And ever allure.


On the ground looking up,

Wondering if you’re enough.

“Do I have what it takes?”

You hear your inner self say.


Grasping at the highest stars

No matter how far they are,

Feeling their twinkle in your own eyes,

They become your sight.

Then, once more, you reach far and wide,

Beyond the world… beyond the starry sky…

Blessings tend to fall

When dreams stand tall.

Thanks for reading. I'm honored it helped you. God bless.
above the stars,above the sky,where tears gather from the ones that cry
falling back down upon your shoulders that wash away troubles that feel like boulders
he touches you in the morning dew,washes away your every care,telling you he is always there
