What dreams are left when lovers say goodbye
What need is there of sweetness in a bloom
When there are no more songs to fill the sky
And even rainbows only promise gloom
What dreams would bless the shores of such a stream
Where memories replace a flower’s scent
While eyes disguise the sky’s new color scheme
And rainbows bring more reasons to repent
What dreams remain to understand the pain
From mindless storms which rip flowers apart
And leaves it to the sky to help explain
Why rainbows search for havens in a heart
I am that dream which wanders through that night
The other’s at her window by her light

This poem is very well written. It makes me kind of melancholy, but it does it in such a beautiful way.
