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.
