The Dream

The Dream

by leanne herrera

dare to dream for tomorrow

i hear it in the wind

it beckons me to follow

like a cool breeze on a hot day

hope is a big word

it is what i long for each day

it means new beginnings

it means a new way

they say that there are 2 roads

i believe that there are more

one that is hard

one that is to good to be true

one with laughter

one with fear

i believe that at one point or another they cross

it is our job to find the right path

that is our hope

to find the right one

one that heals

but there are no truly easy paths

i know this it is a lesson that i have learned

i hold in my hand this dream

the dream of tomorrow

the hope for today

a smile to brighten my way

a hug to make me feel safe

a comforting voice

to soothe my fears

and i know i am ok i can press on

it will all right

i have found the road of strength

it carries me

it carries to the dream of tomorrow
