Are the cards you hold all you perceive,
Or are they the ones you wished to receive
And you’re closing your eyes to living?
Is the ace that you think you hold
Only something you’ve heard or been told
Leading you to bet higher and continuing?
You see a three, you see a two
Your luck is in, they’re falling for you!
The banker is dealing!
Is that the five that you wanted so dear
That you prayed until certain your message was clear?
Is God finally listening?
A four, a four; what would you give?
To take away the taste, that’s so addictive.
You shake the card you’re holding.
Perception I’ve heard it said
Is how one views things, or how they’re read.
It can camouflage a life for good or for bad,
Giving happiness or making one sad.
Why not pray for happy, what’s wrong in that?
Life is so miserable wearing a dull, sad hat.
Why not dream some dreams that’s what they’re for!
Lay in a dream tonight and dream of that FOUR.
