I had a dream last night
That I've never had before,
You and I and the rest of the world
Stood before an open door.
A light shone out from that open door,
So bright we could not see,
And we marveled at it's brilliance
All the world and you and me
And a voice spoke soft within us,
So soft you could barely hear,
And it beckoned us to step inside,
We need only leave our fear.
Yet fear was the power that held us
From taking that fateful step,
Away from the darkness behind us
And into that day unmet.
As we stood together silently
Unable to break the bond,
The lofty door closed noiselessly
And the light so bright was gone.
When morning dawned I recalled that dream
And the message rang so true
Of a chance for peace and harmony
For the world and me and you
