I Dreamed A Garden (poem)

I dreamed a garden filled with long ago

Where flowers bloomed in moments of the past

Still sweet the feelings from the scent they cast

So full the colors which I use to know


I saw the dew of meaning meant to last

The promise of tomorrow in their glow

What ways of wonder would a breeze bestow

To timeless treasures which then seemed so vast


I dreamed a garden filled with things now gone

Beyond the cruel and mean of current straits


I dreamed a garden filled with things now drawn

By things whose blindness evermore abates


Please take my hand and help me to dream on

For in my heart I know that garden waits
