Daydreaming as the days pass by,
thinking of things -
that have come and gone.
Soothing music that plays,
bringing back memories of yesterday.
Daydreaming watching clouds drift by,
thoughts of times that were such fun
and wondering what tomorrow will bring.
Will there be many tomorrow,
full of new promises,
that shimmer and shine,
bringing the love for which you yearn.
Daydreaming to ease my mind,
drifting upon soft pillows,
feeling like I could fly -
daydreaming brings smiles to me.
A way of connecting to what was left behind,
daydreaming and drifting,
on lazy days,
humming along to favorite songs,
closing my eyes,
letting the music just take me away.
Then I leave the world behind,
close the door to troubled times,
think of the pleasures -
that each day can bring.
Daydreaming of sweet memories,
times that are my yesterday and my tomorrow -
times that will always stay to shape my world.
Daydreaming and remembering,
easing my mind,
sending me on journeys,
to faraway places.
Just floating away,
no special words left to say,
longing for this feeling to last -
