More than a Pipe Dream

November 24, 2020 - Heart matters, In Love
More than a Pipe Dream

When you’re young & poor
You can only afford to dream
And when you’re wealthy and you can’t buy happiness
You sulk and get a change of heart
Because life has dealt with you like the dinosaurs

As the days make their meanders
And the nights chase after the days in corners
You realize that the best thing there is
Is the ability to dream
To take yourself up the clouds and breathe courage

For the while, you ‘ve made constructs into the sky
It does feel like nothing
Yet those are the spikes of the seeds of happiness
They are the grains that make the flour
And you’re keen, you notice the colouring in the dream

And when I say she’s more than a pipedream,
I mean it
She’s the buzz of the safari rally
The red in the rose from Naivasha green houses
She has a way of completing the circle
She climbs from the lift of abstract to a reality

Way more than a young mind can construct
With the fittings just exact
Like a billboard held high, she make me float in merry
She does light up my journey to the days leading towards flowering September
She’s my kind of wealth and blessing
