My Dream Land


My dream world where I love to stay
Is near the ocean, the sea and the bay.
With the mild scented breeze I sway
And colorful flowers blow my mind away.

There buildings are shorter than palm trees
I can find nature's friend- the bees.
No continuous honking of the cars,
Peacefully alone, with me are my stars.

When all other seasons sleep in mother nature's lap,
Monsoon comes to fill the gap.
Then green and waterfalls fill my dream land
Like a beautiful magic from a wizard's wand.

But every time when I look at the reality,
My dream world fades away
Then everywhere I see are human made calamities.
Now I only see tall buildings on my way.

Then I see a dream world more pleasant,
Beautiful than yesterday, lovelier than present.
My twinkling star better than new,
My dream land in reality I see in you.

of the slow autumn at my window,
