A rhythmic rhyming tribute, a light verse, a play on Dreama Bigger's name.
Dream a bigger dream

Dream a casserole,
bigger than a bright full moon,
enough to feed the world.

Spice it with the joy of kindness,
sauce that tingles tongue;
to pasta cooked to cling to ribs,
add a dose of love.

Dream a bigger host to feed;
the hungry are always here!
Hear their faith restored by food;
do it with heartfelt cheer.

And whenever plagued
by thoughts of doom,
go dream a bigger dream.
