HUGS AND DREAMS
A blue camping mug;
Give words a hug.
Drinking wine through tin
Is the happiest I've ever been.
Dreams can't be borrowed;
There is no promise of tomorrow.
Leave your comfort zone
And take pride in being alone.
Do not become lost in the words failures say.
Let the dust of others settle where it may.
Count the stars at night
until worries are out of sight.
Open your eyes,
Awake your passions.
Capture a sunrise, a sunset.
Along the way, always remember
To forgive love, but don't ever forget
A heart will never heal without
Giving the skin time to peel.
