I Wonder


I wonder,
I wonder if this life is life at all;
if it's a dream, then I may fall.
The feelings I embrace may be false;
the triumph of love, this moonlight waltz.

Memories I hold dear,
thoughts of fear:
Are they all that which they seem,
a fragments of a shattered dream?

But who to say this dream is real,
even though we may not feel.
Does it harm me to say,
I do not wish it this way?

    If life is but a dream and I am not real,
    When I read your poem why do I feel.
    Like the words you wrote massage my soul,
    And caress my heart making me whole...

    The wonder of life may well have no answers... I enjoyed your poem... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
