' Understand

There are consequences to everything
Intentions have their purpose -
So don't deny
Or justify -
Just accept what is;

Momentary flights of fantasy
Highlight the mundane world
Of real life,
Of real strife -
Without dreams, we die;

Every little now and then
This life bestows a gift,
A brilliant light
To set things right -
Fresh life to a dying heart;

Be grateful for the blessings bright
Accept them as they are,
They're sent to you
To see you through -
They are not yours to hold......................

Understand.

Clothes maketh the man. A lovely poinient piece Nimal. just enough words to say what has to be said.
If she looks closely she will see that it is the socks that were darned with such care and not the polish that tried to hide them, that really matters Love duncan X
A bit wistful and vulnerable. But daydreams are fragile at best. The power of the poet's rich imagination is always at his disposal.He can simply paint another dreamscape that is more favorable to his mood. A very fine poem, Nimal. Sandra
