You say that I’m a dreamer

and so I may well be

but the dreams I have

aren’t just for me,

they’re for you and all to see.


The dream is of love,

of life free from harm,

a dream of peace and

shelter from the storm.


The dream is the lifeblood

flowing deep in our veins,

the dream will always be

for all to see

and all that remains.


The dream is the water,

the ice and the fire.

The dream is the mountains

rising high in the skies.


You say that I’m a dreamer

and I would tend to agree

but I dream for each

and everyone

that one day we’ll all see.


The dream is flowing

over rock, sand and green,

the dream is for all

that remains to be seen.


You say that I’m a dreamer

but the dream is so divine

and it’s hiding there

inside you and me,

forever and all time.

    It’s really interesting that as soon as I read the words “You say that I’m a dreamer…,” I thought of John Lennon. Beautiful poem.
