Rick Imamoto - November 2000

 

waiting to awaken
from the dream
is this life
really what it seems

illusions pass again
before your eyes
can you see the Truth
between the lies

questions of the heart
invade your mind
searching for the answers
you cannot find

through it all
the ups and downs
as what came along
soon goes around

with the widening gap
between the world and your dreams
as your hopes slip through
between the seams

perhaps the answers
to the questions in your mind
could be found in what
you cannot leave behind

the memories
you won't regret
the people
you will never forget

perhaps the answers
to the questions in your mind
could be found in things
from which you cannot hide
