DREAMS
Claude Peter Dhuet

What are dreams made of,
The aspirations for which we strive,
For all the things we cherish,
To make our life worth while?

Like bubbles floating in the air,
With iridescent beauty,
We accept them or reject them,
We wonder if we can use them.

So many forces can affect them,
How long will they survive,
Time and pressures are against them,
As they slowly pass us by.

One by one they disappear,
They are forever lost,
Light ghosts in gossamer veils,
They fade before our eyes.

Our dreams and aspirations are like bubbles,
How delicate they are,
The important things of today,
May be naught in the tomorrow.

We never know what the future holds,
Like bubbles our dreams can fade away,
Lest all our dreams n'er come to past,
Let us enjoy what we have today.
