Important Dreams


Expectation

Remember when we had nothing
but dreams to build our life on
based on promises
that were the pillars
on which our love rested —

honesty
loyalty
respect
trust

One by one
they have all crumbled
under the weight
of perhaps unreasonable
expectations
dividing our dreams
into yours and mine
leading us along
diverging paths
bringing us to this fork
where we must
pause and ponder
on whether it is too late
to resurrect those
important dreams
we once dreamed together
