Now I Dream

 

Lyrics

I am just a poor old woman

A widow of impotent means

All alone in this harsh world

But now I have relief

From the pain and misery


Each day I praise my benefactor

For his gift of charity

With eleven other lost souls

I share this sanctuary

We are comfort, we are free


I no longer fear the rain and thunder

I no longer hear the screams

I no longer hide in shadows

Now I dream


I now have a hot meals in my belly

And a warm and cozy bed

But most of all I'm now safe at last

With a roof over my head

I no longer shake with dread


I now see rainbows

And the sun up in the sky

I can almost touch the silver moonbeams

And catch the wind as it sails by


I no longer fear the rain and thunder

I no longer hear the screams

I no longer hide in shadows

Now I dream
