Seymour Rice, Albert H. Brown, 1898

Two little children one morning,
After their breakfast was o'er,
Were laughing and playing together,
Alone on the dining room floor;
The girl of a dream had been talking,
But refused with a toss of her head,
To tell it all to her playmate,
Until he coaxingly said;
Chorus:
You had a dream,
Well, I had one too,
I know mine's best
'Cause it was of you.
Come sweetheart tell me,
Now is the time,
You tell me your dream,
I'll tell you mine.
2. Tom said, I dreamed you had promised,
That someday we should be wed
Why that's just exactly like my dream,
Mary then blushingly said;
Time they say brings many changes,
But their love no change ever knew,
So they were happily married,
The dream of their childhood came true.
Chorus:

3. Sadness has entered the household,
Where happiness once reigned supreme,
The sunshine of life now has vanished,
Grief has dispelled their bright dream;
For Mary his kind loving helpmate,
Had yesterday passed away,
And in sorrow Tom thinks of the morning,
When in childhood to her he did say,
Chorus:
