Beauty of a Dream

You took my hand
As it slowly went cold
You pulled me close
And held me tight
In this dreaded World of Night

You saved my life
Then took my hand
And led me into a distant land
With flowers glowing bright
And a river running deep
You went and showed me every delight

The lightning cracked down
Lighting up the world
As the rain ran down
My tilted up face
I laughed at the boom
You squeezed my hand
And then I knew

That when i looked down
You'd hold me tight
And never let go
Until you kissed 'Goodnight'

As you started to move
I opened my eyes
To my sleek white room
