A Dream - Poem by Theresa Quinn

Galleon ships and fair maidens
Water blue and crystal laden
Sands of yellow diamond light
Paradise island, tropic delight
Palm trees hide the native lives
Birds of rarest beauty hides
Red and purple feathers
Search for secret treasure
Treasure of peace not gold
Life's true meaning to unfold
Walk along the golden beach
Water gently covers our feet
Holding one true special hand
As we walk on crystal sand
