Les Miserables, La Folie

If a picture paints a thousand words, music can write a million and sometimes save a life.

I have kids in my life besides my own but I can’t see mine. I can’t see some of my adopted kids either but I can get messages to them.

This one goes out to one of the ones I love the most and she knows:

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I prayed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
And they turn your dreams to shame

Still I dream he’d come to me
And we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

Dreams can come true my little fighter. Just keep fighting and I’m right here beside you to help and carry you. If you go, my life will be little more than the black hole you leave. You know I care and we’ve come this far. Let’s keep going and not give up.

Let’s run.


Because one day we won’t be able to.

Keep your head up kid. I know you can swim, you just gotta keep moving your legs.

And these are for you. It’s music. The first is yours and the other two are more about me but specifically what I am to you…
