The mellow evening sky melts into a diamond studded blue,

Setting the stage for the world of dreams.

Dreams of old, and dreams brand new

Joyful, blue and adventures too.

The darkest thoughts, the monsters under your bed,

The heavy rain cloud, you so dread.

In the world of technicolour

You can scale mountains, or dive into oceans

You can fly with the clouds

Or glide next to stars.

In the world of dreams

You can explore the realm of your mind

Dipping into the deepest spaces

The yin and yang, the shadows and light

Where the puzzles of life are put together.

So, when the day melts into the night

And the sandman comes with magical sand of dreams, sprinkling it onto your heavy eyes

You can delve into the unexplored, knowing only you have the power

To feed the monster, or feed the light.
