A Dreamer's Paradise

Beyond the rim of pomp and circumstance,
Above the world of tragedy and woe,
There is a place where I escape to dance;
It is a place where only dreamers go.

When hurriedness becomes my way of life,
And agitations seem to never cease,
Imagination lifts me far from strife
Into a realm of pure enchanted peace.

While there I leave my cluttered life behind
To float on clouds of calm tranquility,
Where breezes softly kiss my burdened mind
And sunbeams play to make my spirit free.

As if on wings that gently fan the air,
I am released to drift without a care.
