A Dream After A War - Poem by Dean Meredith

He dreamed he was alive again
Before he joined the war
When life was innocent back then
His family quite poor

He dreamed he was a boy again
The year before the war
His father and the other men
Ships sailing far from shore

He dreamed he was in love again
Before he joined the war
How lovely she had looked back then
Before he sailed from shore

He dreamed he was alive again
A time before the war
When boys were boys and men were men
When all he knew were poor

He dreamed of love and life again
He dreamed of nothing more
How life was hard for them back then
But his girl he could adore

He dreamed he roamed the earth again
Before what was in store
When boys were boys and men were men
And all he knew were poor

He dreamed that he woke up again
Was waving to the shore
Their loved ones waving back at them
As they sailed off to war

He wished he was alive again
He wished for no more war
He wished he was in love again
Though all he knew were poor
