A Dreamer’s Daughter

I’m a daughter of a dreamer

who died searching for neverland

with pie-in-the-sky expectations

but white knuckling through life

grasping for control a vapor, an illusion

my legacy from an earthly father

I release

to you my heavenly Father,

trusting I have a rich inheritance

abiding in Your Son

who has forgiven me and cleansed me with His blood

my hope is now in heaven,

and my fruitless striving undone

to be motivated by your love, your heart

my Father by me, for me

my life resting in you alone,

so I release to you my control,

and all my expectations too

trusting you know and you love,

and that is all I need to.

Amen.
