Dreams



Dreams do manifest into reality
the test is in the waiting
the passage of time
patience

Waves caress the glistening sides
of the white sailing ship
her name a beloved acronym
a gift

Behind lies land and what used to be
ahead lives adventures to be found
hand and hand and arm in arm is life
profound
