Fools Gold

Saxon Crow

Gold only glitters in the light

And love is a setting sun

The moon hides precious things from sight

While a broken heart comes undone

The river waters become filled with salt

And hopes are dashed upon the rocks

The current takes you away from home

And all your dreams sink like stones 

But the brightest stars shine on 

Deeper than the ocean depths

Forever searching through space and time

Speak to them and they will never forget

That you once lived 

A life, a life full of foolish regret

    A fine write SC.

  • dusk arising

    The hidden reward of a broken heart is that it mends. Bringing wisdom to a star with which to shine.

          Thanks for this gem of wisdom Sax to know that when hopes are dashed and dreams sunk that the brightest of stars shine on is so comforting - a well penned and positive piece my friend which goes into my faves for when I need to read it again.
