I had a dream my life would be
So different from the hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed
My god but I can't get Susan Boyle and this song out of my head! Not a day goes by that I don't replay the youtube of Susan singing this song.
I know I am not alone. I know many of us (especially the elderly) have a special feeling for this part of the song.
We often wonder where our life has gone.
Why wasn't it all we dreamed it would be?
While things can always be worse.. so many times we feel exactly like this song.
It makes me wonder ...
If everyone has their dreams... how many really get to live them? Or even get close? Or get any of it at all??
But I thank god for dreams...
for fantasy and escapism ..
for the very small moments we get to live dreams, if only in our minds. I don't think I could have survived without them.
