Fragile dreams

Soap bubbles
drifting on the wind
beyond the reach
of fingertips
containing whispers
from heart to heart
in rainbow colours
floating on the breeze
of promises made

Will the bubbles sustain
the distance they travel
between willing souls
living separate lives
making choices by day
based on reality
while dreams of the heart
parish through time

As a bubble bursts
creating rainbow drops
falling to the earth
submerging with life
again whispers
create soap bubbles
until the day
our separate lives
become one…
