A Dream In A Picture Frame

Everyone has a dream
A dream for tomorrow
A dream for the future
A dream that makes
A life worth living

Sometimes we write
Our dreams to the water
Together with our heart
To be carried away
To the deep wide ocean

Sometimes we bind
Our dreams to the wind
Like a child’s balloon
Striking to the sky above –
Free and gone

Sometimes a dream
Is placed in a box
Locked by another dream
Like a dream in a picture frame…

Wonderful poem. You've beautifully captured the taboo of a socially unaccepted love. Here's hoping you get to live out a last stanza- one that allows you two reward for your patience.
oooohhh! what a sweet poem
