In dreams you can soar,
Avoid all thoughts of destruction and war.
Spread your wings and open your mind,
Keep in your heart all the things you may find.
Observe a pond's ripples as they tell you a tale,
Build up a boat and open the sail.
Row across waters throughout distant lands,
Bring along a flashlight and make animals with your hands.
Tell your new friends 'Good-bye',
There will be other times for 'Hey' and 'Hi'.
The moon sets and the sun starts to rise,
Wake up little children, return to your lives.
