Awaken

Awaken me from dreaming
Of days of youth’s sweet warmth.
When innocence danced in the sunlight
and joy painted the sky blue.
Those days are gone forever
I can not go back no matter how hard I try

Awaken me from dreaming
of adulthood’s harsher realities.
When disappointment freezes me to the ground
and despair makes the sunniest days grey.
These days are far too many
And I do not wish to dwell on them further.

Let me continue dreaming
of sweet futures yet to come
When opportunity gives lift to my step
and love provides all the light and joy I need.
Those days are yet to come
But I can not wait to go there.
