I glimpsed in a dream a garden with flowers sweet and bright,
I woke amid a winter’s storm and longed for warmth
Again I dreamed and glimpsed a couple hand in hand,
I woke and sighed wishing I could know something so grand.
A third dream was a vision of a baby smiling so sweet,
I woke to my empty house and longed for such a treat.
A devoted life brings glimpses and seeds stored high above,
God will keep your dreams
and hopes with a Fathers perfect love.
No blessing denied a valiant soul, for all are precious and dear,
So smile when you see a promise and keep it ever near.
And amid the sorrow of waiting keep looking up,
For God with loving care is filling up your cup.
One day the waiting will be done and you will come to see,
dreams you waited to hold, are the truth of what will be.
Then your heart with joy will feel the power of love,
As you receive of the garden grown by God above.
So bounteous and beautiful nurtured just for you,
Blessings sweet and sacred for a child dear and
