as the Sandman showered me with his dream sand,

i closed my eyes and faded off to dreamland.

at first everything was pitch black,

i stared into nothingness, nothing but the dark.

and then i heard a boom and a crack,

and i saw beautiful, wonderful sparks.

firecrackers rained everywhere,

then rainbows shown here and there.

all the colors filled the darkness,

that seems to fill a certain calmness.

then i saw it form before my eyes,

the beauty that i used to see from the skies.

a comet zoomed past my head,

a meteor just right above my bed.

the stars twinkling brightly within arms reach,

there were countless of them, i couldn’t count each.

i saw swirls of vast galaxies,

it was an honor to be bestowed of their majesty.

planets small and big,

they danced, wiggled and jigged.

i sat there, or maybe i was floating,

still and in silence; row, row boating.

when i opened my eyes, i was looking at the ceiling,

but can’t help but smile at the wonderful feeling.

i would have loved to be able to see more,

perhaps next time, i will explore

of the majesty of the galaxy.
