as I was thinking about my previous childhood post,
I thought of this song.
this beautiful, precious & possibly prettiest song of all time.
I listen to it over & over.
and when I do I think of my childhood.

it's magical.
priscilla ahn is unbelievably beautiful inside & outside & her voice captures her essence beautifully.
you can see her original video here- watching her perform it is something in and of itself, but I like to listen to it with no video... and see my own pictures.

I was a little girl
alone in my little world
who dreamed of a little home for me
I played pretend between the trees
and fed my houseguests bark and leaves
and laughed in my pretty bed of green

I had a dream
that I could fly
from the highest swing
I had a dream

long walks in the dark
through woods grown behind the park
I asked God who I'm supposed to be
the stars smiled down at me
God answered in silent reverie
I said a prayer and fell asleep

I had a dream
that I could fly
from the highest tree
I had a dream


now I'm old and feeling gray
I don't know what's left to say
about this life I'm willing to leave
I lived it full, I lived it well
as many tales I live to tell
I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now
to fly from the highest wing
I had a dream
