Dreams










When destiny leaves you alone in the dark;

When your mother and father leave you early,

All you have left are hope;

All you have left are dreams,

Yes, my friend, life rolls along the road of dreams,

And each dream is finished soon;



Travel in peace, dreams of mine,

Into the land of color,

the wonderful land of noble memories,

So that my blind spirit might see through the turquoise moon's eyes,

So that my tired spirit finds its peace in your sacred cradle.

Fly with the breath of Freedom,

So that you may sow the seed of young hope

In the courtyard of heavenly gates;



Travel in peace, dreams of mine,

To honor the many tears haunted by memories,

To honor the many stars haunted by lonely nights,

To honor the many winds haunted by prayers of the unfortunate;





Travel in peace, dreams of mine,

Into distant valleys of saturnine silences.

Find your humble home

In the infinity of human tragedies,

So that you may fraternize many unfortunates

With your merciful existence,

So that my lonely spirit can see the magnificent light

In the fraternal souls of people I hold dear;





When they want to kill your hope,

hoist your flag of dreams

And keep on marching your way,

like a noble soldier of Dreams.

Walter William Safar Claim this poet

BIOGRAPHYWALTER WILLIAM SAFAR was born on August 6th 1958 in Sherman-Texas . He is the author of a number of a significant number of prose works and novels, including "Leaden fog", "Chastity on sale", "In the flames of passion", "The price of life", "Above the clouds", "The infernal circle", "The scream", "The Devil’s Architect”, "Queen Elizabeth II", as well as a book of poems.Many times, while escaping the real world, I used to find my sanctuary in the blissful chest of mother Art. With these poems, I am curing the hungry soul, and it hungers for compassion, love and faith, just like any human soul does.Hungry and thirsty, I am staring into the very heart of the dark spirit of my own subconscious, and I would feel betrayed for who knows how many times, only to appease my thirsty soul with a torrent of tears, because poetry is like a tear on the face of mankind.I don't know much about victories, but I am sure of one thing, that compassion is a victory of the human spirit. I wrote these Poems on an old typewriter, which I inherited from a late American writer. This wise, good man used to read poems to me when I was a kid, saying that I too will read my poems to other people, but first I shall roam the world searching for myself.I admit I no longer have the will or power to roam around, but I haven’t lost the will to write poetry. All I want is to share my poems with the whole world.THE CAPTAINImagination is the timeless sail of all words,And words only float without it,Like a windjammer without wind.Without imagination,There are no journeysInto unexplored worlds,Because the world is but a boundless ocean of desires. more…
