A Shattered Dream Ago

A shattered dream ago

I watched the mirror glisten

And knew the truth that lay

Within its lethal fragments

                  

A shattered dream ago

I watched the river flow

And felt as though my soul

Was drifting in the current

                   

A shattered dream ago

I watched my life

Falling to pieces

And blowing away in the wind

                

I shattered dream ago

I watched reality fade

In the golden light

Of the emerald glade

         

I watched it all

And did nothing.

         

A shattered dream ago.

The End
