Enough to Know
It is true I've dreamed many dreams that never came true.
I watched them vanish when dawn came through.
But I've realized enough of my dreams
so I continue to dream on.
In my life, I've prayed many prayers,
when no answers came;
I wanted to be patient and long
Enough answers came through from my prayers
that I still to this day keep praying.
I trusted many a person would call themselves friends
who failed and left me alone and weeping,
But through it all I gleamed enough friends
so true to keep me trusting on.
I've sown many a seed that fell by
The foul of the air found food in day
I seen enough bountiful fields from my hands
that keeps me sowing on.
I've sipped from the cup of disappointment
and pain I've drained many a day no joyful song.
Still I've sipped enough nectar from the sweetness
of life to make me want to live on.
I've learned in my life that the love we give to others.,
that keeps coming back for more of the tenderness ,
and compassion the friendship and relations
that keeps us all going on.
