Once there were 
No limits to my dreaming
No boundaries to my ambitions
No love I could not possess.
Some fire raged within
Volcanic and seething
Nourished by success
That only at intervals could rest.
Each day another test,
Each idea a challenge beyond compromise,
Critics only shadows, empty voices
That came and went.
Then I lost a love I thought I owned
And tried to conquer life myself alone
While age came crashing into youth
In cosmic conflict,
And left me lost in fears I’d never known.
So… now I’d like
To kiss your hand
Maybe laugh a bit
Give a flower life
Love a child.
Then again there would be no limits to my dreaming !

    This is really very beautiful, Evelyn, so interesting how it brings vivid images of youthful days when dreams knew no boundaries, when fires burned passionately within…fueling us on to whatever dreams we held dear. Thanks for sharing, I love this. It\’ll take me into dreamland tonight (this morning rather) thinking pleasant thoughts of dreams and possibilities.
