Dreams at Night Time"
I’m going on an adventure now the world has grown all dark,
all the world is sleeping on a journey I embark.
The night becomes my soft warm stair on with I climb away
Into a world of dreams and joy
and everlasting day
I run, I fly, I soar through clouds not knowing if I’ll stop.
Where wizards cast and dragons roar from every mountaintop.
For each adventure brave
and strong the heroes and villains wield
Enchanted swords from distant lands and brightly shadowed shields.
With them I go on magic quests
where winds and rapids flow
To storm a fortress, journey far, building legends as we go
Where castles bend and towers fall with creatures taking
the darkest caverns of fearful beasts are treasures shining bright.
In realms so strange and worlds so fair I see a wondrous fate
courage always wins the day in a world that I create.
And when its time to wake at last I feel no great concern
Because my world will wait unchanged
until I can return.
If asleep or if awake it matters not you see.
My world is real, within my reach, if only just for me.
