City of dreams.

I dreamed a dream.
One where life was simple and true.
Where laughter and joy was intermingled with tears and screams.
I found it with you.

Thank you for letting me be a child.
Thank you for letting me go wild.
Thank you for letting me be me.
Thank you for being my city of dreams.

I owe it all to you, your alleys and streets.
The countless memories which have filled up sheets.
Your potholes, your bumps, your ups and downs.
In perfect harmony with my smiles and frowns.

I gladly look through all your flaws.
The daily fears, the countless wars.
The heat, the masses of people, the trials through which we strive.
All this intoxicated my soul, made me come alive.

And when I go, though a part of me will perish,
I will rise again, like a phoenix from the ashes.
I’ll call on the strength you’ve given me, the one I now call my own,
And have complete faith that I will go on.
