Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

A compassionate, wise, and very well-written poem. Salvation is from within.
Mary, I don't know where you get it from but you sure have got it - well done
This is beautiful. Uplifting, and honest enough to give anyone hope. Your words are so powerful, yet you always show such great compassion with your observations. Magical. Kindest Regards Slim. x.
