When you’re young
Nothing is impossible
Anything can happen
And you believe
Everything will happen
It just will
It’s expected
You expect it
You expect your dreams
To just happen
And for a few brief
Shining moments
They will
They really will
You’re young
You’re good looking
The world is golden
Life is just clay
In your hands
You can make
Whatever you want of it
It’s just there
Right there
At the end of your
Fingertips
And you reach for it
And you touch it
You touch
Reality
And then the shine fades
And
One
By
One
Your dreams begin to die
And only now
So many years later
Can you see
That the dreams
Those beautiful
Seductive
Dreams
Were just false expectations
And that reality
Should have been
The true
Dream
