Dream On

I don't suppose you'll cry to lose
A broken heart.
There's certainly no use in tears
On spilt milk.
But teddy bears are often loved
The more for being old and used,
And holes give special comfort to
Those shoes unfit to walk in.

Dream on,
Why not accept the truth?
Even apples are despised and scorned
Once bruised.

Thank you J.D. Bardo, Jason Bayliss, and Jennifer Malden for taking the time to comment on this poem. ?

J.D. I've already been around for a couple of decades since I wrote this, I'm definitely teddy-bear-soft and slipper-cosy by now. Let's stay around a long time more too!

Jason I like that 'yesterday's kiss on the face of today' although I'm not sure if sometimes it is more of a kick somewhere else that yesterday tried to give me.. as for my future self... should I kiss or kick?

Jennifer I agree with you all those things you mention are far better the more time they have to them

Thanks also to everyone who clicked 'Like' for this poem ?

Nice One. Some things are more appreciated with time, think of wine, antiques, trees, an old saddle is infinitely more comfortable than a new one! An old friend too is usually worth more than a new, just because of the time passed. Like Jason's comment too.

All the holes, tears, lines, scars and wrinkles are just signs that we've truly lived, just yesterdays kiss on the face of today. ❤❤

I love this Aviva, "Dream on" past all the holes and tares that got us all of our memories, I hope we are around long enough to make new shoes old and comfy, and a new teddy bear soft and broken in.
thank-you for sharing this. J.D.
