I was doing some research lately and came upon this wonderful piece by Howard Goodman. It talks of perseverance and hope. I hope it blesses you as it did me.
I ‘ve dreamed many a dream thats never come true,
I ve seen them vanish at dawn,
But enough of my dreams have come true,
To make me keep dreaming on.
I ve prayed many a prayer that seemed no answer would come,
Though I d waited so patient and long,
But enough answers have come to my prayers,
To make me keep prayin on.
I ve sown many a seed thats fallen by the wayside,
For the winds to feed upon,
But I ve held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on.
I ve trusted many a friend thats failed me,
And left me to weep alone
But enough of my friends have been true blue
To make me keep trusting on.
I ve drained the cup of disappointment and pain,
And gone many a day without song
But I ve sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To make me want to live on.
