Life is but a dream

Sitting under this cherry oak tree
The summer winds embrace me
As I wonder what was my life meant to be…
“Grow strong and wise” our mothers always say
I’m sure you all have heard them say
But what if we never get to be
A doctor, lawyer or teacher, you see

Life is not 1 + 2 equals three
Maybe life is nothing but a dream
A dream… it’s what we all have
A dream and nothing but a dream
But some of us never dare to do so
For alongside the problems come
Doubts show their way
And hope starts to fade.

Life is but a dream
And what we could do if it isn’t
For one can’t live without a hope
For a better sunrise, for a better tree
So under this cherry oak tree
I write, I sleep, I dream,
I wake and I yearn for a better, bigger dream
For if life’s a dream
I will every single day
Until I can dream no more
And I wish you adieu
I sincerely hope you dream as I do
For if we dream, we need to…
For life is just merely a dream.
