Roses of Life
I have dreamed many dreams that never came true,
I have seen them vanish at dawn.
But I have realized enough of my dreams, thank God,
To make me want to dream on.
I have prayed many prayers, when no answers came,
Though, I waited so patient and long,
But answers came to enough of my prayers
To make me keep praying on.
I have trusted many a friend who failed
And left me to walk alone,
But I have found enough of my friends to be true
To make me keep trusting on.
I have sown many seeds that fell by the way
For, the birds to feed upon
But I have held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on.
I have drained the cup of disappointment and pain
And gone many days without song,
But I have sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To make me want to live on.
