BEAUTIFUL DREAM LIFE is a beautiful dream in time, Upon us, its wonders to shine, Each day is a feature for us to live, This of its passing history to give, Many have passed this way before, For us have opened up many a door, We are living in dream, a future to be, If we are blessed, then it to see, A dream to reason and to think, With others of dreams can make a link, The past is gone, the future, the present to be, In this of our dreaming we can be so free, This dream of today will come and go, Only us of it then in our minds to know, But it will pass into a memory, In dreams of the past then to be, Dreams and life are all rolled into one, Until our greatest dream is done.
