Love found him; even in his dream.

I had a dream and nobody was there
No gentle smiles or hopeful eyes to please
No broken hearts or worried minds to ease
A strange new peace was floating in the air
And as my soul was captured in some breeze
No heavy cares or hopeful stares to see
No shallow lives or promised lies to free
The flowers bloom without a scent of these
Then something shook this shadow that was me
No need to fill or thirst to quell in sight
No hand to hold or world gone dim to light
Was this the grave to claim my memory
And as I dreamed came whisper it’s all right
Could this be song a rainbow had to share
Could this be spring the fount of loving pair
And as I dreamed now someone held me tight

    Martin what can I say I have so much respect for you poets you make it seem so easy your line “Could this be song a rainbow had to share” said it all how many men have looked at a rainbow and wondered why.
    Best Wishes
