A Pocketful of Dreams

I have a pocket Full of dreams that, I carry wherever I go I wonder what dreams I'll dream tonight for I never seem to know I closed my eyes to drift asleep as I reached in for a dream I grabbed one tight within my hand then, flying became the theme Now, I'm in a dream and flying and, this feeling of flight is grand I have no wings to fly at all Yet, my feet lift off the land I used my mind to fly around such freedom I can feel For, deep down in my heart I know that flying can't be real I woke with the dream of flying And yet, it's never as it seems But, I know I'll dream this dream again from my pocketful of dreams

Thanks Skat, It was written as a lullaby. I have not yet had it recorded. But I have sung it several times. Both young and old seem to like it. I guess I found my best style of writing. I do my best when I am writing for children. But I'm still a child at heart.
