I want to write a picture
And sail it towards the sea
I want to paint a story
A time of you and me

I want to find a shadow
And sew it to my back
So I might walk upon it
And never shall turn back.

I want to be a fairy
And fly up with a cause
To live among the dragons
And seldom every pause.

The stars would only twinkle,
The lights would only shine
The secrets of the world
Forever would be mine.

The author's comments:
Late nights eventually fade into mornings, and with them carries all sorts of magic. This is mostly a poem about dreams, about things not having to make sense at all if they don't want to.
