Only A Dreamer

Only a Dreamer is a signature poem by Ruth Desjardins where she describes herself


I’m only a dreamer whose dreams come in rhymes

And colours that dazzle your eyesight,

Where feelings and wishes and heroes abound,

With lightning and glorious sunlight


I’m only a poet with a pen spinning dreams,

I’m only a writer of stories,

Of heroes and lovers all living a life

Of wonders, and grandeurs, and glories.


I’m only an artist with a brush in my hand,

To show you the colour of daydreams;

Of autumns, and sunsets, and skies of bright blue,

Of dancers, and dreamers, and love scenes.


I’m only a singer whose dreams are in songs

With melodies sweet and heart-breaking,

That tell about loving, and freedom, and joy

And dreams that leave lonely hearts aching.


I’m only a dreamer still gazing at stars

Still dreaming or heroes and glory,

And finding my hero will always be there,

And we win at the end of each story.
