In a Perfect World

In a perfect world there would be no pain.
Sorrow would vanish in the gentle rain.
Emotions unfold with every thought,
Just to be happy with what you have got.

In a perfect world the sun would shine bright.
Dark clouds would be nowhere in sight.
The stars would pierce the darkest night,
Dream would appear, just take flight.

In a perfect world there would be no need.
Something would grow from every seed.
The more planted, the more could grow,
You could learn with still more to know.

In a perfect world there would be no regret.
Nothing to remember, so no need to forget.
We would see things as they truly are,
There wouldn’t be a distance that was too far.

In a perfect world I would know what to do.
But at this moment, I barely get through.
Emotions still unfold with every thought,
I see what is, and dream for what’s not.
