I've Dreamed Many Dreams

I've dreamed many dreams that never came true. 
I've seen them vanish at dawn. 
But I've realized enough of my dreams, Thank God, 
To make me want to dream on.

I've prayed many prayers, when no answers came, 
Though I waited patient and long, 
But answers came to enough of my prayers 
To make me keep praying on.

I've trusted many a friend that failed 
And left me to weep alone, 
But I've found enough of my friends true blue 
To make me keep trusting on.

I've 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've drained the cup of disappointment and pain 
And gone many days without song, 
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life 
To make me want to live on.
