Dreams To Die For

Dreams To Die For

2 mins 14.6K 2 mins 14.6K

I dream of nights when I could dream without drinking,

And sleep without thinking.

When the cries and pain weren't a part of my heap

And the lullaby was enough to make me sleep.


I remember the sunny Sundays,

And my happy childhood ways.

I remember the way to Grandma's place

And I dream of going back, just like old days.


I dream of people who felt something,

And of words that meant everything

Of days when my soul shone so bright,

That it played with the sun's light.


I remember when we used pencils to write,

And could rub off anything that could backbite

But with pen in my hand tonight

I fear if I'll churn something all right.


I dream of getting rid of photos hidden in the bottom rack,

And of sending letters written long back.

I promise to no longer wait for replies that were forever awaited

And i hope the place in my heart for them will now be vacated.


I remember people from my past

And I think of fixing forevers that didn't last

But now when I know that future for us has an uneven forecast

I wish i live today with a blast.


I dream of a moment when time stops by

And we can't help but look without the blink of an eye

I hope we see a future that kept promises afloat

That took us and our forever in the same boat.


I remember the summer that lasted forever

And the winter that kept us under the same feather

But now what'll keep us standing will not be some weather

Because now I know, we are in this together.


I dream of a day I am so alive

That even if death visits

I tell her, "I'll survive."
