The Dreams of a Thousand Nights


Here in this place 
Lays to rest
The dreams of a thousand nights 
The hopes of a thousand tomorrows 
The wishes of a hundred dandelions
And the longings of countless days 
Here in this place 
Lays to rest 
The dreams of a thousand dreamers 
Hundreds of fallen starts 
Here is laid to rest 
A million tears of pain 
The sadness of winter nights 
The anguish of summers crushed 
The bitterness of fall’s past 
And the depression of never sprouting spring 
Here in this place 
Is laid to rest 
Everything that we wanted 
Everything that we wished for 
Everything that should have come 
Here in this place 
Is laid to rest 
Every dream Good choose not to fulfill 
In the hope beyond hope 
That He will use these broken things 
To be soil for new plants
New dreams 
New hope and the promise 
Of countless tomorrows 
To be with Him
