Dream


Shh time for sleep
Oh and how it is such a sweet release
In your dreams all your wishes come true
Become a kid again remember the sky so blue

The beautiful buttercups that bloomed in the spring
The little fishies that lived in the stream
Go back to that childhood innocence that was lost long ago
You remember the smell of the rain
You see how it makes you glow

But you have to grow up someday
You gain so much with age
And someday you will be a sage
Visit your youth in dreams
All safe in your bed tucked away

In your dreams you'll never grow old
Remember your childhood, you were always so bold
Shh sleep my darlings
Leave all your fears behind
Escape to your dreams relive your youth

Ah how it is to be a child
To wake up one morning and realize:
the dream is all you need
