As a society, we spend too much time trying to stifle the dreams of both children and the inner most child in all of us. We misplace our values, thinking that dreams are merely wants. We dream to dream. We always have. We always will.
The Dreams We Need by Michael Romani The razzle dazzle of a child's heart Is filled with wishes that won't depart As the light show begins inside her mind There are a thousand surprises left to find There in the glow of her sweet smile Is the fabric that becomes her style A laugh danced upon a moonbeam A love of light safe within her dream A wish whispered of once upon Of ballet slippers to dance upon A wish made for a forever happiness Where love, pure and simple, brings bliss There on the edges of your kiss Are the memories that I would never miss Not for all the money in the universe It could not replace the music of your verse Dreams and wishes, these are meant to be shared With all of those for whom we have cared Kept from sleep by dreams dreamt while awake With the kind of love that is given but cannot be taken This child's smile is a light show serenade Enraptured by the visions that do invade Every waking moment in which we are agreed That dreams like these are the dreams we need (c) December 30, 2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
