Dreams, Not Promises

I know there isn't time enough
For you and I to share a love,
And while this news does sadden me
My heart stays open, for there'll always be
My memories of London, you and I
Together for now, trying to defy
The restrictions of time, the truth of life
Knowing dreams are not promises, no matter how right,
That the world has plans that may differ from mine,
And that love cannot blossom without the blessing of time.
Still, I find myself hoping for what's hidden from view:
Laughter and romance, forever with you...
