Wandering and Wondering

I wonder about the stars
shining in the cloudless night.
The setting sun slowly sinking
into the sea,
out of sight.......
Life's hidden meaning,
a mystery that unfolds
into my open arms,
like a story being told.
Dreams that go on
for all eternity,
never crossed the line
between illusions and reality.
The echo that fades away
comes back to me
a whisper in dead silence,
ever so softly...
Did you ever stop
to wonder why,
about your existence
or the birds in the sky?
The steady paced time
slowly passing us by.
Real emotions
going through my mind.
I become oblivious
to the chains that bind.
Forever wondering
Forever searching
For true meaning
of being alive.
