A TIME TO DREAM
 
I relax upon a pillow,
Of boughs and leaves of green,
I gaze into the sky above,
It is my time to dream.
 
I release my mind and free my heart,
I let the wind take me where it will,
I become a dancing leaf,
I am free and I am thrilled.

 
My lungs inhale the fresh, sweet air,
Washed clean by morning mists,
I savor every breath I breathe,
Like ambrosia on a golden dish.
 
I have this urge to feel and touch,
And encompass all I see,
Each awesome sight within my mind,
The wonders of my dream.

 
I am taken far beyond
The mundane things of life,
I float upon white fleecy clouds,
I am fairy-like and light.
 
I am a child of innocence,
Next I am old with wisdom,
Then I am a bit of each,
Which contributes to my vision.

 
I dream of love and God above,
I see angels on the wing,
I hear their lovely harps of gold,
And I hear their voices sing.
 
I must not close my eyes,
Lest I would slip away,
But how temptation beckons me,
To leave this world and stay.

 
I must embrace it all
Else my dream not be complete,
I have this overwhelming love,
For every soul I meet.
 
I dream with passion and compassion,
I love the things of which I dream,
For a moment I escape
To places only I have seen.

 
The peace and love within my dreams,
I cannot give to you,
But I can wish you time to dream,
So you may find your joy, too.

The very appropriate music playing is an original composition of
Margi Harrell's, entitled "Dreams," and, of course, is played by her.
Isn't it lovely?
