I Believe

I believe in seven impossible things before breakfast
I believe in the game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth
I believe the roads we walk will never end
And I believe I love you

I believe in the healing power of music
I believe in the faith in a good night's sleep
I believed in the Higgs boson before it was cool
And I believe I love you

But we are all gladiators in the arena of the Self
And my belief sustains me only for so long
We face our fears and doubts in the arena
My love for you is all the shield I hold

We shall build a bridge of hope
          I believe we can
We can bridge the river of our tears
          I believe we can 

I believe that poetry is a tonic for the psyche
I believe in dragons, dashing deeds, and derring-do
I believe that books are visas in our passports of escape
And I believe I love you

I believe you when you say you'll call me
I believe you when you say you'll write
I believe, when you say you love me
And I believe I love you

But alone I am a gladiator in the arena of my Self
And my belief sustains me only for so long
I face my fears and doubts in my arena
My love for you is all the shield I hold

And I believe I love you
