My Field of Dreams
Into my field of dreams I shall travel,
The beauty of the journey about to unravel,
With no map to guide me and no hand to hold,
I embark on the path my dreams to unfold.
I shall journey across the highest mountains,
Sail softly on life’s ever-flowing ocean,
As great danger appears as a traveling writer I will stand fearless,
‘Cause my dreams are bigger than fear, stronger than doubt, larger than life.
Like a bald eagle I will lead with bravery,
Courage is my strongest virtue,
Inspiration emanates from the world around me,
Trusting my faith to guide my fearless spirit.
I may be famous and possible turn up fortune,
I may win the Nobel Peace Prize, then one day retire into the sunny skies,
But wherever I go, whatever I do
My dreams will grow into life so true.
Into my field of dreams I travel,
The beauty of the journey ‘bout to unravel,
Many challenges to defeat, my faith runs deep,
My field of dreams is my life’s legacy to leave.
