The door of my dreams
Often I dream of a door,
On the other side of which,
I believe lay my dreams and more,
That are always out of my reach.
Each time it is a different thing,
But it is always something that I long for.
The wishes and desires,
That I always hope would be true someday.
Sometimes it is a loved one,
Not gone forever, but still with me.
Sometimes it is those friendships,
That I thought were lost.
Often it is the solitude I seek,
The peace amidst the chaos of everyday,
Those beautiful places where I wish to be,
That time when everything is alright.
Sometimes it is all the things,
That I want to be, but I’m not.
And at times it is everything I can be,
But I’ve never tried enough.
I’ve always wondered what lay beyond,
When I see the door of my dreams,
But I now look at it for real,
I tell myself it is just a dream.
And now, I stand here,
Wondering if I should knock,
What lays beyond I wonder,
Should I stay or walk?
I wonder if it is a trap,
For I’m afraid of things going wrong.
Will the door ever open I wonder,
Oh maybe I must find a key.
