Unrequited Life

Someone is living the life that I had dreamt
That someone is not me
Page desire back in my memory book
Pages of a different life it seems found me

Someone has the life
I did think should be mine
Ironic but true as well
Someone else has my life in view
I have their dream life
Could that be true?
Green notions of the other side
Does this devotion ever leave our mind?

Not that this life isn’t without merit
So what to do?
Page hope is etched in spirit and time
Wisdom tells me that dreams are just that
Dreams of what could be or not
Justification or do I placate ?

Someone is living a life that happened along
dreams were not part of their song
My life, yours and those yet to begin
dreams ready on the picture reel
Dreams of the past and what is to come

Lament not that the dream
no prophet did bring
Some dreams passing moments of truth
Moments that leave before they begin

The life that is yours

no matter what shape
Know it belongs to you and embrace
Someone may be living the dream
Are they sleeping?
Are they awake?
