"A Dream Within A Dream" as written by and Edgar Allan Poe Loredana Groza....
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.

O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?

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!
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
