i know of…

with her rose- colored glasses

i know of dreams that tell a thousand lies,
of schemes that deal with alibis.
i know of love that leads to tears
and laughter – leads to pain.

i know of hearts that know the feel
of too much tenderness,
of lives that lack sheer happiness.
i know of peace of mind that can’t be found

and serenity that leads to chaos.
i know of little things the world can’t see.
i know of peace and bliss and harmony
for i see life through different specs.

even the pain, the lies,
the tears and schemes –
all seem bearable when seen –
through my rose-colored dreams.
