Hope and Dream


Hope’s got a friend —

her name is Dream.

When the roads don’t end,

when the light is dim —


Hope takes a look;

Dream holds her hand.

And together they cook

a wonderful plan.


Hope says, “I hope—”,

Dream says, “I wish —”;

Hope says, “It’s possible!”,

Dream says, “It is!”


When they travel together,

with Faith on the side;

the horizon is brighter,

and the shadows hide.
