A Night's Journey

When the late night shines upon me 
And I am just a yawn away 
From entering my dreamland 
Such a lovely place to play 
Will I remember if I have been there 
Are my thoughts sketchy at best 
When I lay my head down to sleep 
For an evenings night of rest 
When my head it hits the pillow 
And I slowly fade away 
To escape into my dream world 
To lead my mind astray 
They seem so clear and vivid 
While I live them in my mind 
But the details become sketchy 
When awakened they are hard to find 
But I travel back each night time 
In search for a perfect place 
A fine nocturnal excursion 
And a view of your beautiful face 
My heart has joined this lovely ride 
It has traveled this road before 
Walking hand in hand in the night sky 
Revisiting earth once more 
We’ll dance across constellations 
Tip toe along the stars 
While the evening skies become your eyes 
And I feel you near and afar 
Then suddenly we are falling 
And the planets pass us by 
Holding on to each other 
While we no longer fly 
Our lips they touch just one more time 
I suddenly lie awake 
Returning from a journey 
I never knew I would take 
It all seems so wonderful 
That I close these eyes each night 
And float away with my imagination 
The heart navigates this flight 
Some times the ride is plenty rough 
Waking up in a cold cold sweat 
Recalling that you cant dance in the big dipper 
Without getting your big toes wet 
Now I lay me down to rest 
And these eyes will slowly close 
Ready for my night time journey 
But to where? , nobody knows
