The Dream Lives (Poem) - Poem by Dave Tanguay

He made it very clear - he said I have a dream
That my little children may walk in freedom
Let their laughter and joy sparkle and gleam
As the Lord looks down from his kingdom

He said let all men be judged by the content
of their character
And truly not by the color of their skin
Let us put an end to the racial barrier
Look deep inside and find the love within

His message rings loud from the church bell tower
Let us pause and give tribute to this fallen giant
He spoke of peace in his speeches until his final hour
A man of God he was - and quite compliant

Although his soul rest in peace with the Lord
His dream lives in all whom seek peace
Let us join him in his journey - let’s all climb aboard
Put an end to all prejudice and let the fighting cease
