Sweet Dreams--By Gert W. Knop--Germany

Sweet Dreams

Oh, do not mourn,
is all your light weak,
it's only dreams,
which find you in the night

They do not stay
they fly away from you,
are shadows only
and when the day awakes,
only nice dreams,
which will remain

Thoughts are like driftwood in the sea,
they drift away from you,   
and only some will stay,
and those remain
are coming quickly back

Gert W. Knop, born in 1943, studies art and tropical agriculture in Germany and Scotland (University of Edinburgh). He has lived in many different countries and writes mainly in German, English and Spanish. He currently resides in Zittau (Saxony), Germany.


  1. Wow, your poem leaves several thoughts in mind when read and one of those is that life isn't easy but that we should never give up hope and never take things for granted and stay in reality, too......... how blessed we are to read you here on this super on-line journal called Whispers! Sheri

  2. Hi Gert. I have enjoyed reading "Sweet Dreams." Like a 'sweet dream,' this poems delivers often needed elements of simplicity. Thank you for sharing this beautiful reminder of simpler and treasured things in life like our "sweet dreams." Continued blessings!
