I Am But a Dreamer

I am but a dreamer
and in my dreams I play
where I live so happily
writing them my way
inside my illusions
where I know I belong
whistling a joyful tune
as I go along

Like a little spirit
I venture on the breeze
skipping in the gentle wind
doing what I please
with the rising sun I dance
wrapped inside his charms
across the golden morning sky
twirling in his arms

I can climb a mountain
or live among the trees
sail in a silver sailboat
on the seven seas
I can draw a moonlit night
ride on a bright moonbeam
and swim among the diamonds
in a velvet stream

I am but a dreamer
there's nothing in my way
living in the place I love
loving everyday
maybe it's a fairytale
but that's all right by me
I'm the master of my dreams
where I wander free

No one there can tell me
what is wrong or right
following what's in my heart
I live in the light
happy in my dream world
that's where I choose to stay
in the world where I belong
writing dreams my way

    Robin, if I had dreams as lovely as yours, I would probably never wish to wake. Wouldn't it be grand to "ride on a bright moonbeam and swim ang the diamonds." Send some of these incredible dreams my way! Love, Carolyn

    This is so beautiful I am adding this to my favorites. It is nice to know that I am not the only dreamer and that someone else thinks it is okay to live my dreams my way. Smiles from Lolita~ looking forward to reading more of your writing!

    Have you ever swung on a star? Carried moon beams home in a jar? Or are you better off as you are? Or would you rather be a fish! Congrad's on your win! Robin girl. Light & Love

    I find dreamers to be the most beautiful people I know. We must never stop dreaming, it makes us who we are. This write has captured my heart with its magic - the magic of reality. Sounds ironic, but if you think about it, it's true. A reflection of you, talented poetess and dear friend. Dream on and keep writing. Love & hugs, Shar xoxo
