Who cannot relate to youthful dreams. When I was young I had visions of being the president of our country. I planned to go to law school. Then reality hit and I found myself drafted and in Basic Training. Yet a dream persisted of doing something great with my life. I married a beautiful girl and within a year my young wife went blind. She was blind for three years. I stopped dreaming. It all went wrong.
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong
I dreamed a dream in time gone byAt my lowest God came into my life and gave me new dreams. My wife's eyesight miraculously came back. We had children whom I so loved. My faith was alive. For years I loved everything about my life. I loved work and church. The dream was coming true. Nothing seemed impossible. Then my wife had heart and kidney failure. I prayed every day for her. Then four years later she died. And my dreams died again.
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
I had a dream my life would beStayed tuned for Act II. Tune in next time for my thoughts on the second dream.
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
