I DREAM OF DREAMS

Yesterday I dreamed big dreams,
Today I dream some more,
Except today I dream of dreams
That I have dreamed before.

I dream of dreams dreamed in my youth,
Those castles in the air;
I'm now approaching middle age
And find those dreams still there.

My dreams have not materialized;
I guess that I have failed.
Can I now build upon my dreams,
Or has my ship already sailed?
