Dreaming Big

The sky is a canvas on which i paint my dreams,
with vibrant colors or yellow,red and green.
Swirls of emotions wavering in the sky,
I watch the stars as they dance by.
But then a dark storm comes my way,
and i have a feeling it is here to stay.
The colors fade, and do you know why?
Its because i paint my dreams up in the sky.
