Ship of dreams

We graced the clouds like children

traipsing about and skipping over bumps

laughing at the magic of the universe.

How had we forgotten

those moments that slipped in while we lay weary

fighting each moment that tried to steal us away,

not yet ready to sleep we fought so hard,

not realizing that the best was yet to come.

We cast our ships to the sea of stars

lit by the moon we found our way each time,

trying so hard to remember the words,

the stories we lived in those places

and being woken not ready,

not noticing the images slip quickly away

like rabbits startled into the brush

we rubbed our eyes and stepped tiredly from the warmth,

oddly content by a full night of rest

unaware often of where we had travelled

across the cosmos on the grandest adventure,

but now that we are older

we look forward to those moments of escape,

quiet places we slip away to visit

happy to find the calm and peace craved

sailing our ship of dreams

we ride the gentle waves

into a sweet bliss.
