Alone upon a dream to rest
Without the obligation
A song of pleasure my request
With none well meant negation

A woeful way to meet each day
With hardships everlasting
It brings dismay to hearts once gay
With ties forever grasping

If only I could fly away
Beyond these earthly bounds
To sing instead of words to say
With pleasures all around

The smell of jasmine in the air
To float among the clouds
God's gentle breath to take me there
Where peace of mind's allowed

Within a granted wish to live
Without this fear and shaking
Willingness for love to give
Without my heart from breaking

I've closed the door behind me
Escaping from my fears
I wish I could look bravely
What causes all my tears.

So leave me alone in solitude
And think me not so awfully rude
For in myself I've found a friend
That loyalty and comfort lend.

Your poem lends to deep heaviness within the soul. I would have like to have seen you expound on your friend and how he helped you
through this heaviness.
