Sea of Dreams

“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

What if there’s only one,
only one person whispering
not what you want but
what you need to hear?
What if her compliments
are from the source of truth
instead of lies you fear?
What if her urging you
means you can do
whatever you put your mind to?
What if she embraces you
with understanding
of foreign lands
you haven’t felt before?
What if that’s the one step
you need to take.

What if?

Would you recognize
the pleasant afternoon
at the French café
sipping exotic tea
discussing documentaries,
would you know
that was Your Muse?
Your inspiration to plunge into the ocean;
naked, vulnerable, open
to explore the deep world of you,
the endless sea of dreams.
Would you reach
beyond your sight
to meet the welcoming skies
of opportunities?

Would you?
