A Mother's Dream

My mother said I could do anything, have any girl, live any dream and be as happy and successful as I wanted.  She believed in me.  Maybe that's what we need most in our lives, someone who believes.  Otherwise, we stand alone, looking across a valley of time with no one saying, "Go ahead, sweetheart, take another step."  It's been nineteen years, I miss her, her loving faith and most of all, I miss her infinite hope.

I can't for the life of me
Remember a sadder day
I know they say let it be
But it just don't work out that way
And the course of a lifetime runs
Over and over again
