If I Told You A Secret - Poem by Connie L. Burchett

If I told you a secret -
would you promise not to laugh?
It's a place of fairytales
made up only in my dreams.

A wonderland so sweet that
you would never want to leave.
Where your spirit can be free and
there is no space or time in my dreams.

Only happiness can enter in and
no pain or sorrow will you ever find there.
This is my secret hiding place
that I'm willing to share.

So take my hand and join me-
in these fairytales; made up only in my dreams.
