As Old As We Are / We Contınue To Dream


We continue to dream-
We never lose hope
But hope against all odds and probabilities-

We delude ourselves
We make mistakes
We do not know what we are doing,
And yet we continue to dream-

Dreamers we are
Even in old age

Without dreaming we die
And who wants to die?

As old as we are we continue to dream
To dream all the way to end,

And pray to God
For Beyond also.

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
