~ I’m Only Dreaming . . . ~

Postby DeaconSteve » Sun Mar 30, 2008 11:42 pm



I gaze into the world I see
Somewhat different than before
Could it be that it has changed?
Did the lion stop it’s roar?

I see children who are fed
No starvation do I see
Smiles upon all the faces
How is this possible, how can it be?

No one is in a hurry
But instead taking each ones time
I marvel at the sight before me
Could it be that I’m loosing my mind?

People are embracing each other
No matter what race or creed
Willing hands are helping each other
All is peaceful and serene.

No tears are falling like rain drops
No sadness or evil it so seems
Love embracing all who go there
I’m only dreaming, I know
but it don’t hurt to dream.

There is peace among all nations
No more fighting, no more wars
Instead, helping each other
To heal all the many scars.

It’s a wonderful thing to see
Makes my eyes want to gleam
Oh how I wish it were so real
But the reality is just a dream.

Family life has taken a twist
Children have both a mom and dad
Health care is free for everyone
Insurance companies have packed their bags.

There seems to be no more sickness
Cancer has left the scene
Yes, I know that I’m only dreaming
But it doesn’t hurt to dream.

I take delight in what’s before me
Angels about singing songs of praise
Evil has lost it’s battle
To God all voices are raised.

I don’t want to be awakened
From the gracefulness that all seems
Yes, I know that I’m only dreaming
But it don’t hurt to linger in this dream

Steve....it might only be a dream today....but someday, it will be reality!! You have wonderful perspective of the problems confronting mankind today; its sorrows, needs, hurts...the healer will be our Lord Jesus!
Thank you for sharing this profound write!! :!:

With Love, Hugs and Friendship, :D

The proud heritage of my forefathers has given me the freedoms that are those to claim as mine. May I always give homage to the sacrifices they have made to bring me to this place, this day!

Ah! Steve, I only got as far as the second verse, before the tears started to fall. This so touched my heart. God's children are hurting so very deeply, my heart breaks daily because of all the sorrows and pain that surround us. Just a, beautiful dream, a heavenly dream, I would say. It is a look at heaven, it gives the hope of a better and brighter world to come. Aman. Thank you, so much for sharing this beautiful dream. I am so happy to see you writing new poems, and they are better than ever. Jesus has touched your heart, and thought Him you have touched mine. This should be a video.

Love and Blessings Joyful Jan :D :D :D

:D :D Oh!! Wooowww!! This is a wonderful poem, Steve!! I love it!!
Imagine,...a World with no hate, only just love and the sky above us?? I am sure, your dream will come true, eventually in the near future...We may all be dreamers, and many others can join us too...The Great Healer, our Lord will heal the World for a better world for all of us. Of course, it will all be in His time and in His will. God´s will be done, because He is in control, not us. God created the World for the better, and not for the worst. Many evil people are making things bad and ugly, though. But I am sure, the Lord will intervene to change all things for the better, one of these days. Unfortunately, we do not know when that sort of fortunate event will happen...
Your work of Art should be made into a lovely Video-Poem. It is a real Masterpiece, Steve!! I truly love reading your poems.
God bless you in all you do, Steve!!

I too wish the world was like this at times. I know it's only a dream but your words will inspire others to dream too. When we dream we foster hope. Thank you for sharing this great poem with us Steve!

Well, I never did dream of this though, but I am thrilled and joyful, and so very humbly thankful to you Mr. Webmaster my friend. Thank you Sheila, Jan, Monica, and Marlys and anyone else who happen to pass by this way. I guess it goes to show that we can dream of such an event in our lifetime if not after that. And I believe that this dream will come to light someday. Thank you so much for your constant love and friendship. I can never say enought about how I feel towards every single one of you. In a couple of months I will celebrate my 3rd anniversary here as part of this Family, and I will do so with much pride. Thank you all for your own uniqueness and specialness, no one the greater, all children of God on the same journey of life which will lead us to His heavenly Kingdom. And when we are all together in that Paradise, I just have to believe that we will see each other body and soul to body and soul, but a glorified body. Peace to all. Be blessed. I know that I am.

Yes, Steve this will make a most excellent e-card. Congratulations!!! For now you have given us all just a little glimpse into heaven! I was reminded about when we had a foster baby for a few days of African/ American descent. He went home to his daddy. We got the strangest looks everywhere we went. Brian and I are both obviously caucasion. James is of Mexican heritage and Jordan African/ American. But the boys could have cared less. They were just like brothers! They played and fought and did all the things siblings do. No one had told them they were different! That is the way it should be! You just keep getting better and better!!! ((LOVE)) Jeanette
