If Life's A Dream!
The rose today smiles; 'morrow dies.
The seeming desire perches; flies.
As the rainbow of the sky dies;
The sunset thinning with sunrise.
If life's but a dream;
What would your life mean?
Where would your sun beam?
Where would your thread seam?
What if your eyes in unknown dream
Are doomed to be shut so adream?
If we must unshut them someday
Only in The One to awake?
Some live a lie and think it's a life;
Some live on fright and think it's a flight;
Some live a mile and think it's a mine;
Some throw a fight and think it's a might.
If life's all but a dream;
Would you be mean or meek?
Would you be weak or thick?
Would you grin or be grim?
All such I've lived: the two edges;
Cold I'd been but warm now I beam;
Hard I'd been but soft now I am;
Love's foe been but now love's own beam.
If life's all but a dream,
I may awake asmile;
If a reality,
I might have lived it right.
