My Brothers Dreams


Where have you dreams gone my brother,

Did you let them fly away,

Did the wind pick them up and carry them afar,

Were have you dreams gone my brother,

Like a forgotten word did they leave you mind,

Could they have slipped through your fingers like the sand of time,

Did a beast rise up and tare them from your heart,

Where have your dreams gone my brother,

Did they fade away like the morning mist,

Tell me this,

Or did you just forget them,

Where have you dreams gone my brother,

When you began your journey you held them strong,

And When your battle was halfway won, still you carried them along,

But now I see you old and gray,

Without your dreams,

They’ve gone astray.
