Life is a dream

Giustina Menegazzi

Life is a dream.
To exist is to dream.
A short path
moments of joy, pleasure, beauty,
indelible signs.
Then illusions fall,
The bitterness rises,
boredom, flight from reality,
madness, delirium, anguish,
black unrest.
Dreams leave sensations,
something survives in us
that we have to live,
fog without fog.
Past stories in our hearts,
family matters
over for good
before the truth,
lost loves
of those who believed in destiny.
The solution of the riddle
lies in the sense of things.
Maybe man will triumph
in the ups and downs of life.
