A dream of spring
I’m thinking of springtime and flowers;
I’m dreaming of sunshine again;
I’m looking for rainbows that follow
A walk in the soft, gentle rain.
I’m lost a world I’ve imagined
Where sunshine now enters my soul,
Where pain can be soothed and forgotten,
Where beauty will flourish and grow.
Feeling my spirit so fragile,
I seek all that is tender and kind
To nourish the sweetness within me
And leave all that’s bitter behind.
I’m seeking the warmth of the springtime-
The sweet, gentle promise it brings;
I’m seeking renewal of hope now–
The new life I’ve wanted to win.
Dreams that I’ve cherished still calling;
Hopes I have struggled to hold
Nestle so softly within me
A-waiting a story untold.
And so I must dream in the sunshine,
Share the rebirth of the spring,
Recapture the music of laughter,
Recover my reason to sing.
I want all the wonder of living;
I want to have something to give;
I seek to replenish my spirit,
Take joy in the fact that I live.
