Maybe Dreams Cannot Come True, but They


Maybe dreams cannot come true, but they

Are mountains that give shape to the horizon,

Reference points to guide us on the way

Towards lands long promised us in distant Zion.

If we never get that far, we'll be

Nearer for the journey we have taken,

Letting the next generation see

Up close the dreams they else might have forsaken.

The dreamer lives a bit beyond what is,

Having had the courage to say no,

Existing in a future wholly his,

Revealing through his grace where we must go.

Knowing well this world of lust and greed

In which the dream but rarely marks the deed,

None could bear to dream but for the soul

Great enough to bear it for the whole.
