Thoughts captured

In sleep I lay still
Body no longer moving
Yet floating away in thoughts of light
My mind moves to the passion of love and life.
And this crazy world that wisks us often
To places not so nice,
Not so pleasant
Dark shadows
That leave our thoughts tattered,
Here in the jar of dreams
I see the shining places
The laughter heard on air
Carry me away to there
Once more.
I fill my soul
With this simple peace,
Girding my mind against
The Knights of sadness
And spill forth freely
With joy in my soul
Expanding the glass jar of thoughts
Shattering the expectation set low
Because happiness is all
And a life lived in joy and love
Will set its blinding light
On us all.
