New Doors and New beginnings

The room is silent,
Darkness descents slowly
The only light coming from candle light that surrounds me
Their gentle flicker, reflecting off the surface of the glass of liquid calm
Which rests within arms reach

The envelope lies near me
Its clean pure surface gleaming in the gentle candle light
Laying within that pristine paper container, lies a new door
A door just waiting to be opened
One moment, one quick signature is all it takes
To prop that door open, do i dare??

The fear has subsided
The joy has ebbed
The butterflies lay quiet within my soul
I reach and sip my liquid calm
The taste slides gently around, swirling over my taste buds
I swallow and sigh

My fingers nervously flip across the corner
Fingertips brush the smooth white surface
One small envelope holds so much
My journey has just begun

Doors have closed, memories tightly sealed behind their smooth surfaces
The pain firmly pushed back and locked behind those doors.
They say when one door closes another opens,
This is my door, my chance, my dream
All i must do is take that tiny step over the threshold

I have worked hard, struggled, lost sight off, forgotten,
I have forgotten my dream,
I have struggled to take up the dream once again after so long
I have lost sight of that dream, in its place another stood
I have worked hard for that dream
Beside me lay that dream

That door gently nudged open
Within the door way gleams a white pure light
I sigh and pick up my pen
I open that pristine paper container and remove the door within,
My hand slides down the paper
The tip of the pen touches, leaving its liquid gold behind
The door is open, the light gleams

Once again the room is silent,

My heart beat no longer pounds in my ears
Darkness descents slowly
The only light coming from candle light that surrounds me
Their gentle flicker, reflecting off the surface of the glass of liquid calm
Which rests within arms reach
I reach forward and take a sip
I sigh and close my eyes.
Dreams do come true
