My life has been but a dream
Though reality it would seem
You are right, those who deem
Reality is but a dream in a dream.
Yet has reality flown away,
In the hope for a new day?
Is it a vision once here
Or reality that will appear?
As we stand upon the oceans’ shore
We listen to breaking waves roar
As I reach to hold the beach’s sand
Am I really holding it in my hand?
As it seeps through fingers not to keep
From my vision what’s mine to reap?
Perhaps it’s true that reality is a dream
A dream within a dream it can seem.
