Retesting The Waters
29 September, 2014
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


I look back to younger days
When my dreams were free
When there was nothing to interrupt
And nothing was there to corrupt

Blessed with a gift of music
But feeling too inferior to believe
That talent was really enough
Or if I could be strong and tough

Holding back my dreams dissolved
Into the immediate realities of the time
I had to act into accordance
To the things of more importance

I remember the excitement of those days
And look upon them once more
With the strength enough to go on
With the dreams once thought forgone

So time has come to remember
And to celebrate my given talent
Called upon to revisit the dream
To open my heart.. and once again to sing

------- Author's Notes -------

It's been a long time since I sang in public. Even longer that it's been in front of a sober crowd. I am excited and yet humbled to once again,
be given the opportunity... to touch a dream.
