Treasure Island

Don't cry my child

Don't cry my child,
So what if you have lost today,
And your dream didn't come true as you say,
Remember always,
A Dream is forever, like the sky;
Do you see it?
Infinite, Immortal, eternal,
Swimming under the blazing sun
For a long while,
So what if the road is molten and burnt,
Harden it with your will,
Walk on the fire, for beyond lies
Glory and smiles,
So don't cry my child,
Wipe off those evil drops,
For they could make you slip
And fall down the stairs to your dream,
Stand up
And wipe them off,
There shall be only fire,
Burning, raging in those eyes;
Showing you the light,
So what if you have lost today,
You are still alive,
Feel your breath,
Breathe heavy, heavier;
Look up, walk ahead of your dismays,
Redeem your glory,
So what if you have lost today,
Look, there stands tomorrow,
And it's yours my child
For all time

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
