A Dream
by
Alice C. Bateman

I had a dream of you and I
We were standing side by side
Looking out upon the land
We had worked with our own hands

All our hurts and disappointments
Had been soothed by what we’d built
All our hurts and disappointments
All our agonies and guilt

‘Twas a dream that I will cherish
For we had our children there
They were gathered all around us
In that sweet fresh country air

We were free to love our children
Give them hugs and hold them tight
I could finally stop my crying
For my children in the night

You and I had built a family
From the ashes of our pasts
You and I had built a family
One that lasts and lasts and lasts

Will this dream come true, I wonder
Is it just another dream
Or a vision of the future
Please God, bring me what I’ve seen
