The dream isn’t dead
Though I’ve seen it take flight
It spread its great wings
And disappeared into night
I watched it go, bidding good-bye
But I would see it again
I know I would try

Such fantastic illusion, an amazing sight
Sparkling amber, green, and gold
I kissed the wings and held on tight
But let go and watched them unfold
I knew it would be back
Like it would always be
For this dream, the beautiful bird
It is a part of me

It comes back now and then
When I give it a home
An open heart to love it with
And loyalty to be shown
I let it fly, let it go away
To whatever it searches for
But I know it’ll be back someday
Standing at my front door

I look ahead to the future
For I know it will be bright
Someday, I’ll not have to watch my dream
Disappear into night
It will sit beside me, holding my hand
Kiss my face, forever true
For my dream is only my dream
If my dream is you

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.So love the people who treat you right, forget the ones that dont.Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it'd be worth it.

this is great. at first i was like "ok, she's talking about dreams." then i was like "oh my gosh! she's talking about love. she's talking about the same dream i have." i think you're an amazing writer, outstanding. keep writing.

Absolutely beautiful. I love how you've painted an actual, physical picture of a dream that fits everyone. Anyone who reads this has a specific dream they think of. Then that last line specifically fits it to yourself. Beautifully done.
