OF DREAMS AND FAITH
 
OF DREAMS AND FAITH

I have been tossed from season
to season, flung upon the changing
winds that bring each into our lives.
Iíve tasted the rain both sweet
and bitter, touched the sun, and have been
touched by moon.
I have heard
the songs of hope, the dirges of
grief.
I have given up and stayed
strong, have clung to yesterday as
much as I have wished for tomorrow.
I have pled my innocence and admitted
my guilt, toed the line
and stumbled off the fence...
and I have embraced
it all, the good and bad, the dull and
extra special, the weak and the almighty.

I have cherished every season I have lived and
every breath I have breathed
all because of dreams and the faith
that would not allow me to do otherwise
because I believed... I simply believed.
