Dreams

At night I close my eyes and dream,

Of yellow meadows and purple streams,

A glowed with golden sunlit rays,

So peaceful it sets my heart ablaze.

At night I close my eyes and dream,

Of cherry lip gloss and vanilla cream,

Of laughing with friends without a care in the world,

Unafraid of the chance for my fears to unfurl.

At night I close my eyes and dream,

Of crimson ribbons and perfect seams,

Of a brand new life which only happiness awaits,

And of yellow brick roads to heaven's gates.

At night I close my eyes and dream,

Of a place where my inner self gleams,

Of shouting out for the world to hear,

And letting my beautiful inner self appear.

And when dawn's ray reaches me,

I wake up from my dreams and see,

That until I'm able to be happy it seems,

I'll just have to close my eyes and dream.
