Once Upon A Time
In our time we were told there is no "once upon a time".
There is no rhyme or reason.
If you make a dollar and steal a dime
You can buy your way to heaven.

But I was raised on rainbow dreams
Where the ground and sky would meet.
Where if I couldn't reach the stars,
I knew there was treasure at my feet.

I can worry about the media's double-edged sword
When they say it's a withered world I hold.
But I know if you believe in something
A new world unfolds.

And I can never explain to you why I laugh
Or why, at times, I cry
Or why inside I mean the truth,
But he words come out as lies.

Yet in the cold of this world, there is a warmth;
A wonderful shelter in which to rest.
It's in the twinkling of your eyes
That I choose to lay my weary head.

I believe. I believe you were "raised on rainbow dreams" and that's what makes you the outstanding poet you are. And i'm glad you found your warmth and shelter in a pair of eyes. Give us more poems. Please, Dori, I want more. ML
