Do you know what is in the air that I breathe?
Where the beats of my heart go to?
Do you know how I get through the day?
Where the smile on my face comes from?

Why even people saying I am so romantically silly,
I still carry on, I still hope and believe?
Why even in the middle of misery and dust,
I still find a ladder to climb to peace and serenity?

I am a dreamer, that’s why. And I will always be.
I don’t believe in a half-shining sun and a half-falling rain.
I don’t let the gray of the day to paint my heart and brain.
I don’t stop just because I’ve seen the sign “STOP”.

I believe in fairy tales written not only on paper
and stored on the pages of a book.
I believe in fairy tales that I see in the smile of strangers,
in the giggles of a child,
in the words of the man holding my hand right now.

I believe in a frozen heart softened by one warm tear,
in flowers growing inside a cave, where no love has ever been.
I believe in happy ends, in people long-lost finding each other,
in dreams, my dreams that will come true.
I believe in me being a dreamer and I always will…

    I really enjoyed this poem – I love the feeling of hope it envokes inside me. I think my favourite line is “I believe in a frozen heart softened by one warm tear”. When I read it I honestly thought of the Grinch when his heart grew three sizes haha. It was really really great though, I’m definitely going to stop by occasionally to check out your work!

    Thank you by the way for stopping by my blog too :)

    This poem is worthy of being in a book of poetry. Of course I like the poems about kissing (smile) but this one really touched a part of me. I also noticed that Cherlyn stopped by. I like when visitors on my blog co-mingle on each others blogs.

    I was going to use this theme when I update my site later this month but I’m still deciding. Have a great day and I hope you do decide to guest blog for me.

    I too believe in happy Endings.. long lost people coming together.. and everything going wonderfully sweet! Most importantly, one has to be a Dreamer, to be able to conceive in mind- only then shall this Universe work to achieve those desires for you!
    I too am a Dreamer- I dream with my eyes opened and then strive hard to make them a reality. FOCUS..

    Loads of Love Blaga :D
