I am tired of dreams
Too heavy to carry

The one about hope
The one about peace
The one about love

I have no more strength
To hold them in my heart

I will plant my dreams
At the corner of the main road
Where cars by the thousands
Drive by every day

There my dreams can rest
Send deep roots into the earth
Then reach for the sky

They will grow into a tree
A dream tree
With strong branches of hope
Radiant leaves of passion
The smell of love in its flowers
And the silence of peace
In its wide shadow

Anyone passing by can sit
Under the dream tree

In this quiet space
Their wounds will heal
My dream tree will hold anyone
Looking for dreams
