Happy Mother's Day!

The Keeper of Dreams
When I grow up, I want to be
A sailor sailing on the sea
Or maybe a teacher
Or maybe a preacher
Or a steeple bell ringer
 
 You could be all those things
My mom says to me
You can be anything
That you want to be
Just follow your dreams
Wherever they lead, For life is a tree and 
Your dreams are the seeds

When you're young, you can dream
Of being anything
An actor, a rock star, 
An athlete, a king
Whatever I wish for, 
No matter how hard it seems,
I share with my mother, 
the keeper of dreams
