Concluding the blog with the beautiful poem ~

A Dream Within A Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now.
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream.
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none.
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore.
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! Yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep.
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
~ by Edgar Allan Poe
