I Dream That I Can Run
A Poem by Jim Nasium

When I was young I had great dreams
and in them I could fly
but recently in my dreams
I sit alone and cry
not the man I used to be
my dreams of flying are done
now when I have a dream
I dream that I can run

Lucky to be able to walk with a cane
I still get around OK
feel myself getting stronger
a little more each day
still can't do much of any thing
I don't have any fun
used to dream that I could fly
now I dream that I can run

Only four short years ago
each morning when I'd awake
I'd take a walk then run for while
and I did for my own sake
now I can't walk very far at all
my days of walking with out a cane are done
I used to dream that I could fly
now I dream that I can run

Why did this happen to me
what the hell did I do wrong
if not for my muse
and her siren song
I know I would go crazy
and that my time would be done
when I was young I dreamt I could fly
but now I dream that I can run.....
