I dreamed a dream last night
While in this foxhole last night
I was watching flashes of light.
Then visions of you I dreamed last night
To ease the pain of the fight,
To take away the fears of the night,
In hopes that at first light
I did not die in the night.
I fear that the night
Will become reality in the light,
So each night
I keep you in sight
By dreaming a dream, of you each night.
