IT IS THAT DREAM
It is that dream we carry in our hearts
That something wonderful will happen
That it must happen—
That time will reveal itself
That the heart will reveal itself
That doors will open to us
That the mountain will reveal itself
That fountains will freely flow
That the dream will reveal itself
That some morningtide we will glide
Into a harbor we didn’t’ t know was there.
