Reach with Ladders

Updated on May 6, 2016

How many ladders would it take

To reach the nearest star

I say

That , my dear, would take a lot

You'd be stepping quite afar


There's a target to aim , reach the eye

Of the gleaming star

I say

Ladders shouldn't take much

Just do it and reach the sky


There is a dream

A gleaming star looking down

Holding

My dream to give to me


Stepping the steps, aiming to the sky

Clouds with flury might come my way

Push me down

No, no, I say


There is a way

Each step you take

There's a plan you make

To reach that gleaming star

Waiting with your dream


Make a mental note with your plan

To reach your dream

That gleaming star will shine and wait

Holding your dream, at the gate


The Lord has his reasons with his plan

He gave a mountain to climb to some

The Lord, as well gave a hill to many

His hands reached out for them to come

Then

Others he chose to let them walk

They would then mingle and talk

Wide and more on his plan

Yet

He gave nothing

They just won't care


Ladders, he said, to give to you

To reach your gleaming star

Obstacles you will meet along your way

But hey

Just keep stepping as you are stepping

Each day will be a new day


When you reach the gleaming star

Holding your dream at the gate

Your dream sure has come true


The Lord stayed with you all the way

All the way the distance

The ladders held the steps

to guide you each of each day

The clouds were there with the star

The sky is the limit
