when I smiled so oft,
and my light was shining.
There was a time when life seemed kind,
I had peace in my heart,
I had hope, so exciting.
There was a time.
Then it all fell apart.
I dreamed a dream, looked to the sky,
when faith was high and I was living.
I dreamed my light would never die.
I dreamed that I would keep on giving.
Then I was young and prayed and prayed,
and dreamed no chances would be wasted.
There was a future to be made,
filled with joy that I had tasted.
But an illness came on me,
and the dream slipped through my fingers,
as it ripped my life apart,
and then nothing was the same.
I feel a part of me has died
as this disease within me lingers.
And yet I feel I’ll be revived,
one day my health will be reclaimed.
And so I dream that I will see
my body’s healing altogether.
A lovely dream resides in me.
This life on earth is not forever.
This isn’t all that there will be,
which gives me hope to keep on living.
One day my health will be redeemed.
I’ll never stop the dream
Inspired by I Dreamed a Dream from the 1980 musical, Les Miserables
