Dreaming Sailing Star (A Poem)

Dreaming Sailing Star

Steal away, on a sailing star,

We can drift away, so far.

Catch on to a dream,

Float along a star-filled stream.

Come drift away with me,

Because dreams are vast as the sea.

Maybe we could sail away,

Onto the crest of a new day.

Sailing across an ocean of stars.

Floating beyond the moons of mars.

Still falling fast asleep,

Praying for my soul to keep.

Untethered with billowing sails.

Drifting away on whispering veils.

Floating away on a ship of wonder, and headed north,

Sailing on a star, gracefully rocking back and forth.

Crossing over the milkyway at night,

Set adrift like a comet at pre-dawn light.

A shooting star, weary traveler sailing wayward.

Heading toward the dawn, off the starboard,

Across the the twilght, off to a distant star.

In dreams, we can be whoever we are.
