Dreams Really Can Come True

It's not the dreams we have in sleep that grant our hopes debut
It's the dreams awake we keep that really can come true
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that yield romantic fates
It's the dreams awake we keep that actual love awaits
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that make up torrid zones
It's the dreams awake we keep that give heat to our bones
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that help us outperform
It's the dreams awake we keep that go beyond the norm
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that muscle tone permit
It's the dreams awake we keep that shape the body fit
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that manifest in gain
It's the dreams awake we keep that build wealth we attain
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that cut a hardy glow
It's the dreams awake we keep that form a healthful show
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that fulfill lofty goals
It's the dreams awake we keep that achievement extols
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that suffer strife to cease
It's the dreams awake we keep that lend the kiss of peace
It's not the dreams we have in sleep that visibly accrue
It's the dreams awake we keep that really can come true
