Analysis of Until I Can Dream No More by Fred M. Lassonde
Until I Can Dream No More by Fred M. Lassonde
When I awoke this morning with tears streaming
You were on my mind and, as always, in my heart
My mind had been of you admirably dreaming
I never ever wanted from you to be apart
So in my dreams you are still my kind friend
Some say I have given up for I do sleep alot
Yet it keeps me close to you, a means to an end
Your laugh, your smile, your voice I never forgot
Only you kept me from giving up and I was on the mend
Never wanted anything more than to be your friend
No amount of this World and its goods could replace you
All I have left now is your memories and my dreams of you.
So until I pass on from this World, from this place
I will go on Dreaming of a friend I enjoyed and pray for
I will Dream of your laugh, your voice, your smiling face
Will pray for and love you until I can Dream no more.
