I dreamt in a dream

Last night, that I flew

Somewhere so very far away.

T’was a place of beauty,

Where I began to wish I could stay.

My night was filled with happiness,

And all things seemed to portray

All the beauties and the loveliness

Of this wonderful day.

The sky was lit so brightly

That from within its sight

I simply could not beg away.

Down beneath me a lilac tree lay.

Whose plumes of flowers,

Bedecked with sparkling jewels

And drops of rain began to sway.

The whole wondrousness of it,

Upon my Brain

Began to leave

Its permanent stain.

When suddenly the sky

Began to thunder

And its bright loveliness

To split apart.

Wrenching with it the

Very strings of my heart.

Slowly the threads

Of my dream

Started to fray,

And as they unraveled

It faded away.

From before me

My glorious little dream

Of the star-filled night

Was violently torn away.

When as before and always

My sleep filled eyes

Unwillingly registered

The new day.
