(21 Days of Remembering my Daddy: Day 4) One of Daddy's favorite poems

I've dreamed many dreams that never came true, I've seen them vanish at dawn.
But I've realized enough of my dreams, thank God, To keep me dreaming on.

I've prayed many prayers, when no answers came, Though I waited so patient and long,
But answers came to enough of my prayers To make me keep praying on.

I've trusted many a friend who failed And left me to weep alone,
But I've found enough of my friends to be true To make me keep trusting on.

I've sown many seeds that fell by the way For the birds to feed upon,
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands To make me keep sowing on.

I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain And gone many days without song,
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life To make me want to live on.
