~INSIDE A DREAM~

Inside a dream,
Or so it seems...
You can live in a wonderful place.
In this place, you can chase,
All your fears and sorrows far away,
And you can live quite happily everyday.
~
Inside this dream,
Or so it seems...
You can go back to a time when you were young,
And undo all the wrongs--you thought were done.
Those happy days you can live again,
No bad times need be remembered then.
~
Inside a dream,
Or so it seems...
No loved one ever has to die,
There is never any need to weep or cry.
Life would be as perfect as you wanted it to be,
If you could live your life within your dream.
~
Inside a dream,
Or so it seems...
Your loved ones live, sing and talk,
They laugh and love, and pray and walk...
They're always near--right by your side,
For in your dream--they will abide.
~
Inside a dream,
Or so it seems...
All is will.
But then--you can tell...
When you're awake...
By the pain in your heart--an unbearable ache.
That life can never really be...
Like you wished for in your dream.
~
