Visions Of A Dream


When I close my eyes
I see sights of wonder
A fleet of clouds that fill the sky
And roar as one in mighty thunder

And in the streets far below
A crowd has gathered to watch it rain
It is folly, for now I know
Only loss will find them, never gain

I see history as it's born
Past and future grapple in their making
I know not which wins and leaves the other torn
For I can feel myself awaking

And when I open my eyes
I see sights so mundane
It hurts me just to realize
That I will never truly see again
