Let Me Dream All the Time

Let me be something every minute of every hour of my life.
Let me be gay; let me be sad.
Let me be cold; let me be warm.
Let me be hungry...have too much to eat.
Let me be truthful; let me be a liar.
Let me be honorable and let me sin.
Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost."
-Betty Smith (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn)
