THANKS

All my life I kept my dreams,
Tucked somewhere deep inside;
Till one by one you pulled them out,
With none left there to hide.

You pointed to my deepest dreams,
You told me I should try;
Then gently told me I had wings,
And showed me how to fly.

Then somehow you reached in my heart,
Made words flow like a stream;
With loving inspiration,
You became part of the dream.

I never would have dreamed my dreams,
They would never have come true;
Those dreams would not be realized,
If God had not sent you.
