My Ship of Dreams by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 1998


All the world is a vaste, blue ocean
stretching endlessly before me.
And my life is a ship~~~
--My ship of dreams.--

I dream there will be no more hurt.
I dream of no more sorrow.
I dream of a day when the world will
be filled with love.
And joy will fill my tomorrow~~~
--My ship of dreams.--

I dream of a time when there will
be no more war.
I dream of a time when all of man will love.
The world would be better than before~~~
--My ship of dreams.--

I dream of a time when all the world's woes
will be washed away with the sand.
I dream of a time when our troubles
will be carried to the sea.
I dream of a time when we will all help
a soul in need.
For this is how our existance on earth
should be~~~
--My ship of dreams.--

I will strive to ease life's hurt.
I will help bring joy to sorrow.
I will strive to love mankind
today and tomorrow~~

For with every good deed, I will reach for the stars.
Yes, of course in my heart there are some scars.
But these will be my ocean of secrets
that will sink in time~~~

For now, I will strive to build a good ship
strong and true!
For this is all the ship I need.
My life is a gift to make each day count~~
--My ship of dreams--
