The Valley of Forgotten Dreams

There is a place that's far away

Where abandoned dreams descend to lay

With towering cliffs and cloudy skies

That echo with abandoned sighs

Where dreams are shed to wash away

In streams that flow towards dismay

Cast aside when no longer aspired

Left to languish withered and tired

Forever Autumn is this land

Where decaying hopes all turn to sand

Spiraling down like falling leaves

As doubt replaces where dream believes

Then scattered forth on forlorn winds

Howling where desire rescinds

Lost in mists too dense to see

Banished from thoughts to ever be

There sadness weeps upon the ground

In tearful surrender as dreams are drowned

Under cloudy skies of disbelief

Dull and grey with hopeless grief

This valley is hidden and hard to find

Like dreams that dwell within a mind

Hold onto them whilst asleep or awake

And never let go for pity's sake

Dreams must be followed wherever they go

With relentless pursuit wherever they flow

When all appears lost or so it seems

Beware the valley of forgotten dreams

Wonderful. I have many dreams that lie in that valley, not all forgotton, but unfulfilled.

Thank you SW, when I came across that image of the valley I thought it fitted well :yes: and the weeping eye I imposed in the background seemed to finish it off nicely I thought. :tu:
