I Once Dreamed - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

I once dreamed a wondrous dream
As naïve young boy in innocence
And saw beyond the mountain I climb
The land of milk and honey
Where freedom reigns supreme
And love is each soul's strength and purpose.

I once dreamed a wondrous dream
As callow youth, lost and still finding my way
Coming to understand God's magnificence
And his love for the children of Adam
Seeing light glowing in the darkness
Knowing my faith is a shield against evil.

I once dreamed a wondrous dream
As an old man finding God
Knowing his mercy, love and salvation
Following his son's footsteps from the cross
Moving towards the shinning light
And seeing there the everlasting glory of Heaven.
