It's only an hour from now they are going to wheel you away. It's only an hour from now I am going to place your life in stranger's hands. It's only an hour from now that time will stop; yet this hour is going to fly by. Please know this is the start of your new life. I pray these doctors can take this tumor away. I pray this is the start of our new life, cancer-free. I pray you can begin your life living your dreams. I pray my dreams come true for you.
I dream of a day where your hair will be long or short.
I dream of a day those fresh scars will be old and faded.
I dream of a day your biggest boo boo is from falling off your bike.
I dream of a day I hear your voice shouting my name, and even shouting with your brothers.
I dream of a day I complain you outgrew those brand new shoes.
I dream of a day you complain I am making you practice your violin.
I dream of a day you tell me you want to be goalie.
I dream of a day I wonder why hockey is so expensive.
I dream of a day you tower over me.
I dream of a day I sit in the principal's office to hear about some shenanigan of yours.
I dream of a day I hear your name on the honor roll.
I dream of a day I go broke paying for your college.
I dream of a day you tell me you are traveling the world.
I dream of a day you tell me you're in love.
I dream of a day I hold my grandchild.
I dream of a day you dream for your child.
For I dream today is the day your cancer leaves you, and my dream is real.
As I give you my last kiss for the day, I dream it won't be my last. I'll hold you tight in my arms, and sing your sweet lullaby as you fall asleep. I will wait in great pain for the doctor to come talk to me. I will wait for our dreams to begin. Please know, my dear Vito, you are my soul, know you can conquer this all. You were born for great things and to touch many lives. I know your life is destined to soar. Know that you are loved from those close to you and those from afar. Oh, I will wait as the seconds pass, for you to be back in my arms. I love you, my Victor, know that you are loved and by love we live.
