Lonely Clouds

 

Ugonna Wachuku

 

I dream through the night! 
When all hope is won
Love will be my strength
That's my hopeful dream! 

 

Lonely clouds: 

Where my dreams come true
Where I am full and whole! 

Love is all I dream 
And all hate is gone! 

 

Bounties of the night
That's my hopeful dream 
Where I am full and whole! 

 

Lonely clouds: 

 

Where my dreams

come true! 

 

Eagles carry me
over meadows and sea
to the land of my dreams 
Where I am made whole!  

 

When all faith is bloomed
That's my hopeful dream!

 

Every shadow of

doubt is lost on

this meadow land
Where I dream

through the night! 

 

When all hope is won, 
Love will be my guide! 
That's my hopeful dream
All for you, 
for humanity!

 

Lonely clouds: 

I dream through the night
Where I am made whole! 

 

Eagles carry me over

meadows and montains
where love is so real! 

 

That's my hopeful dream 
All through the night, 
All for you:

Dear Ugonna, 


I am drawn in the breathtaking simplicity and eloquence
of your poem. You capture life's truth and hope with such poignant
beauty and understanding. This reads like a psalm from "The Book of
Psalms" and infuses my spirit with a serene faith in both The Creator
and a compassionate humanity. 


Thank you for your blessed insight,


Wendy    faith.

forever. But unfortunatly dreams don't last forever.. but great poem.

Ugonna,


What a wonderful, wonderful soul you have!  This is so
beautiful... I have always associated clouds and dreams with each
other for they have so much in common.
Your writing is so pure and heartfelt! Thank you for the glimpse
inside your heart.


Peace and love ~~~~ Dougie ~~~

Ugonna, 


I have been reading some of your poetry and I love it. You have such a
wonderful flow and the things you write about are so inspiring:


"Love is all I dream 

And all hate is gone"


this stands out because so many people dream
about this too...as do I.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In 1996, Rod Stewart, with Kevin Savigar, performed Every Beat of My Heart with the Scottish Euro '96 Squard - for a CD generally titled Purple Heather. My poem: Lonely Clouds was inspired by Every Beat of My heart. The proceeds from this Stewart CD is meant for the Dunblane Fund - in memory of those beautiful and enchanting 5 year old kids killed by a gunman at Dunblane primary school on Wednesday 13 March, 1996. My poem: Lonely Clouds, just as my poetry collection titled: Hope for Dunblane, is also a deep-felt tribute - in remembrance of those lovely children of God's eternal kingdom and their families!
