Words To Dream By


I write these words to touch your heart,
You must read them by the light of love;
Get comfortable in the arms of a dream,
Pull down a star from above

Wrap yourself in my warm embrace,
Doves of peace will be standing by;
And I'll send an angel of happiness
To chase dark clouds from your sky

Gather a handful of sunbeams,
Carefully..... so they don't come apart;
Then I'll grab a handful of moonbeams,
We'll braid them and bind our hearts

Listen for songs of the robin,
All the sweetest notes you can find;
Weave them together with a summer breeze,
And let them caress your mind

This life is often hard and cruel,
Sometimes, problems get out of hand;
Once in a while, let's get lost in a dream,
Let's take all the joy that we can
