Dreaming of...City Lights

When I was blind, I dreamed of my benefactor. I could not see him, but I knew:

He was kind.
He was a gentleman.
He was a Captain of Industry.
He was generous.
He loved art.
He was a great athlete.
He had important friends.
And above all, he had a tender heart.
And now that I can see,
I see that he is all that and more.

He made my dreams come true. 


  1. Aww... I always get teary in the end of this movie.. very lovely post! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thank you, Irene - me, too. And even though I KNOW the girl and the Tramp don't end up together, I can dream, right?

  3. Sometimes dreams do come true...NICE post!!! ;o)

  4. You're right, Val, and in our dreams we can tweak the story a little, no?

  5. Wonderful post! Only Chaplin could do a silent movie in 1931 and have it become a timeless classic. Thanks, FC!
