Don'T Let A Dream Die - Poem by Mary Bowman

Last night I dreamed of far away places
That I would like to be
Dreaming my most exciting fantasies
And running wild and free.

Don't let a dream die
You should hold on right to the end
You will never know what lies ahead
Just where you have already been.

Last I dreamed of no more poverty
I dreamed of having all the things I need
I dreamed that posterity, fame and fortune
Will someday smile on me
Cause I realize now
It's truly a dream indeed.

Don't you give up on your dream
No matter what passes you by
Because the ones who fall in life
Are the ones who do not try.
