    dotsI Had A Dreamdots

    I had a dream last night
    That I've never had before,
    You and I and the rest of the world
    Stood before an open door.

    A light shone out from that open door,
    So bright we could not see,
    And we marveled at it's brilliance
    All the world and you and me

    And a voice spoke soft within us,
    So soft you could barely hear,
    And it beckoned us to step inside,
    We need only leave our fear.

    Yet fear was the power that held us
    From taking that fateful step,
    Away from the darkness behind us
    And into that day unmet.

    As we stood together silently
    Unable to break the bond,
    The lofty door closed noiselessly
    And the light so bright was gone.

    When morning dawned I recalled that dream
    And the message rang so true
    Of a chance for peace and harmony
    For the world and me and you

      I sort of read in this dream of a chance to rid ourselves of fear and darkness.. but yet that same fear is what keeps us from taking that step into the light. It's a brilliant poem and I guess we may all see it a bit differently. But that's what I got from it. I'm glad I read it. You did well in bringing out that each of us has "a door" we could cross to have a better outlook if we only would make that first step.

    Well Done!

    Take Care!

      Sweet! Your syllable phrases matched and you found something to rhyme with every time... Thats cool! I would put a 9.9 out of 10 on this one... I dont know... just because nothings perfect... sorry but its true. Also repeating the world and you and me... that was brilliant. It matches your earlier meaning and adds to the feel of the whole thing... to refer to your own work really puts a tag on you that says: "I know what I'm saying."
    Your rhyming pattern is steady and clear and as I said earlier, your syllables match for each rhyming and unrhyming verse. Well I liked this one a lot... very expressive as well... sorry I want to write more but ill get to the rest later my time is short. Later.

    Dan, your poem has made my day.
    The beauty and grace of hope is so clear, true, and sweetly sung, that my heart is touched and my eyes turned towards the light.
    Thank you.

      I like this very much, if I'm understanding your theme, making peace one on one will slowly eventually get the job done. My taste would be to omit any verses that show the same or similar action. Take out everything you don't need., combine lines you really like, I'm convinced we all have good ideas for our work, the power is found in editing. If you read it aloud I think you'll know what I mean.
