Dream of life that used to be
Sit here so reflectively
Hear the echo of life sounds
Garden's treasures all around

Windows filled with softest lace

See the beauty of child's face
Looking out with sweetest smile
Imagine love that is worthwhile

House all filled with warmth and love
Stories told by memories of
What my heart wants to believe
See the fire's glow with ease

Smells of baking through the air
Gathered at the table prayer
Hands all held with softest touch
These the dreams I love so much

Parents putting child to bed
Each night a kiss upon her head
Door not closed but left ajar
So her Daddy's never far

Today this dream has come to me
With joy that fills me constantly
Within this life with no regret
Peace I find with each sunset.
