Thoughts, Memories, Dreams

Thinking of a future memory of a dream I never had
Locked in a time-lapse symmetry that desert winds will pad
And it’s not what I thought it would be
Though sometimes the oasis I see
And my spirit still wanders this land free
Because this life has been given to me
And it’s for me

And it’s not what I thought you would do
But I don’t know the times you’ve been through
And your spirit still knows what is true
Because this life has been given to you
And it’s for you

Dreaming of an instinctive thought that clouds all memories
Like a message in a bottle drifting lost on distant seas
And it’s not that his future is lost
Because surrender comes with a cost
And his spirit light can never dim
Because this life has been given to him
And it’s for him

And it’s not that her past is a lie
It’s just a dream that she cannot deny
She’ll look forward to days as they were
Because this life has been given to her
And it’s for her

Remembering a forgotten dream of a thought that was to pass
Reflecting like the sunlight in shards of broken glass
And it’s not that the void can’t be filled
Or rough waters can’t ever be stilled
For the future still hides in a gem
Because this life has been given to them
And it’s for them

And it’s not that blind eyes fail to see
All the light that is in you and me
For our days must be guided by trust
Because this life has been given to us
And it’s for us
