Drift Away © (Jim Aitken 28 Jan 2020)

This big house in the country is where I've long called home,
Living here since I was one; is all I've ever known.
The dorm I share with other kids has eight beds in a row,
There must be a good reason my parents let me go.
Wonder if its my fault: Don't remember Being bad,
Six long years I've dreamed about the parents I don't have.

I drift away at the end of each day,
Drift away to dream and play,
To be where my mind sets me free,
To dream of my loving family.

Festive time we're roasting nuts around the cracklin' flames
Underneath the Christmas tree a present bears my name.
Carols sing as moonbeams stretch my shadow on the floor
Then I rest my weary head and wake my dream once more

To be where my mind sets me free,
To dream of my loving family.

I dream Dad pushes my swing,
We play till the nightingale sings.
Dream Mom hugs me so tight.
Oh dream please don't end
Don't wake me up my friend
Let me dream till morning light

Then one morning my dream just fade: I rub my eyes to find,
Gone the eight beds in a row the only one is mine.
It's not a dream, for standing there's my very own Mom and Dad,
Then that hug I always dreamed from Mom I never had.
I Open presents under the tree In a small house I call home,
But the best gift is a Mom and Dad who love me as their own.

New Ch
Drift away at the end of each day,
Drift away to dream and play,
Dreams carry us through,
And sometimes, dreams come true!
And sometimes, dreams come true!
Spoken..............And sometimes, dreams come true!
