                        A Harpist’s Dream



                                                                                O, I can see for you and me

                                                                                A world that’s safe, no poverty

                                                                                     And I know that we can build it

                                                                                     And preserve it

                                                                                     This is a harpist’s dream

                                                                                     For all eternity


                                                                                O, in my dream for you and me

                                                                                There’s only love and harmony

                                                                                      And I know that we can build it

                                                                                      And preserve it

                                                                                      This is a harpist's dream

                                                                                      Praying for reality


                                                                                There’ll be no wars, no sacrifice

                                                                                Our children raised without strife or vice

                                                                                       And I know that we can build it

                                                                                       And preserve it

                                                                                       This is a harpist’s dream

                                                                                       With all sincerity 
                                                                                       And if we build it

                                                                                                         And preserve it

                                                                                        There’ll be no hunger

                                                                                        Or wants or needs


                                                                                         And if we build it

                                                                                         And preserve it

                                                                                         There’ll be only peace

                                                                                         And good will deeds


                                                                                    O, in my dream for you and me

                                                                                    There’s only love and harmony

                                                                                           And I know that we can build it

                                                                                           And know we can preserve it

                                                                                           This is a harpist’s dream

                                                                                           For a certainty


                                                                                    This dream that lives in my heart

                                                                                     For you and me

                                                                                     Is a harpist’s dream

                                                                                     For all eternity


Renowned Professional Harpist Magdalene Wong of Singapore began music lessons on the piano at the age of four.  She served as an instructor in classical guitar for the Yamaha Music School for twenty years before pursuing her fascination with the harp in 1990.  A Harpist’s Dream was her first composition for harp and was written as a musical score without lyrics.  By invitation, lyrics by Authorsden Gold Member Richard Lee Orey have now been added.  This informal posting on Authorsden is the first publication of the complete composition. 

                                                                                                          To reach Magdalene Wong's personal website and to 
                                                                                                          order CDs of her beautiful harp music, click here:

Dearest Richard this is so beautiful
your voice over moves the depth of the poem
even deeper with the beautiful meaning
and her strings are as a celestial blessing
to the soul of love...
