I dreamed the foolish dreams of hope
The dreams that sang of a world anew,
I sat and I dreamed.
I dreamed of a world
To scold my prom date,
And watch me graduate,
To move beside me as I
Walked through life.
Dreams of days I wish I knew.
Why it is I craved your presence?
Faced with the truth of your absence,
I find myself pondering that still.
Perhaps it is due to the fact,
That the empty place of my heart
Is one that only you could fill.
Here I sat in wait,
Anxious for every word unsaid.
Picturing the day when I would run to your embrace,
As you reclaimed the daughter you forsook.
I would hold on,
reminding myself to breathe....
Foolish dreams indeed.
