A DREAM AND A KISS

A DREAM AND A KISS

What an exhausting day 
My bed calls out to me
My tired body answered 
Effortlessly I drifted off to sleep 

The clouds caught me
I said goodbye to my habitation 
Not knowing of my nights destination 
For sleep can feel like a gentle hug
Or a scary roller coaster ride

Either way I climbed aboard 
And submitted to its reins 
Snapshots of the unknown 
Dazzled my mind
As though I was wide awake 
At the worlds fare

Flashing lights, beautiful lights 
And glances of smiling faces 
Invades my travels 
I seem to know them all 
But nameless they remained 
In the vault of my mind

Then I saw you 
In a field of creations most beautiful garden 
So happy cheerful and free
You beckoned to me 
I responded with love
And you kissed me out of sleep.
