Bedtime Stories

Bedtime Stories

I dreamt of peace
Of simple pleasures
Of never wanting
For food, time, love
I hope for happiness.

I found most
If not all I need
But still I wonder
Were my young dreams
Beyond reality.

Was I foolishly reaching
Toward goals that were
Merely bedtime stories
Never to be fully achieved
Or will the rest come?

I have my love
I have simple pleasures
But peace is elusive
As is lack of want
But I still dream.
