I dreamt when I was younger
of all that I would do,
when at last I’d reached an age
to make those dreams come true.
And though it seemed I’d worked
just as hard as any man,
the many things I tried
never worked out as I planned.
Life,… it seemed to me
always went on its own its own way,
and all that I’d accomplished
was to live another day.
For years I’ve chased illusive dreams
doing all that I could do,
and long has been the time
since I’ve made a dream come true.
But I won’t give up trying
to get closer to my goals,
because it’s dreams that give us passion
It’s our dreams that keep us whole.
