Every Man Has a Dream

Every Man Has a Dream

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

Every Man Has a Dream
by Michael R. Burch

for Beth

Every man has a dream that he cannot quite touch ...
a dream of contentment, of soft, starlit rain,
of a breeze in the evening that, rising again,
reminds him of something that cannot have been,
and he calls this dream love.

And each man has a dream that he fears to let live,
for he knows that to hope is to throw away all,
so he curses, denies it and locks it within
the cells of his heart and he calls it a sin,
this madness, this love.

But each man in his living falls prey to his dreams,
and he struggles, but so he ensures that he falls,
and he finds in the end that he cannot deny
the hope that he feels or the tears that he cries
in the darkness of night for this light he calls love.

I have seen one dream more than twice with the gap of years. People having broken dreams and some being successful in fulfilling them. Yes each man has a dream. Be it love or something tough, if it has to be mandatory in life, twill come in anyway!
Thanks for sharing yours poetry and I found it a great read. Be blessed :)
