Artist: John Denver
Song: On the Wings of a Dream
| | | | |
Yesterday I had a dream about dying
About laying to rest and then flying
How the moment at hand is the only thing we really own
And I lay in my bed and I wondered
After all has been said and is done for
Why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone?
Is this life just a path to the place that we all have come from?
Does the heart know the way and if not, can it ever be found?
In a smile or a tear or a prayer or a sigh or a song?
And if so, then I sing for my father
And in truth you must know I would rather
He were here by my side; we could fly on the wings of a dream
To a place where the spirit would find us
And in joy and surrender would bind us
We are one anyway, anyway we are more than we seem
There are those who will lead us, protect us each step of the way
From beginning to end, for each moment, forever, each day
Such a gift has been given, it can never be taken away
Though the body in passing must leave us
There is one who remains to receive us
There are those in this life who are friends from our heavenly home
So I listen to the voices inside me
For I know they are there just to guide me
And my faith would proclaim it is so, we are never alone
From the life to the light, from the dark of the night to the dawn
He is so in my heart, he is here, he could never be gone
Though the singer is silent, there still is the truth of the song. . .in the song
Oh, why is it thus we are here and so soon we are gone?
