Utopia

Spellbound inside a castle of light Twinkling stars on tapestries outside Emerald horses flying in ecstasy Plum mulberry sunset curling in violet sunrise Galaxies ensnare bubbling stories at nights Blushing clouds flying to waterfalls of dew Where ancient scars dissolve into void And God will bless our innocent souls This picture of heaven since I was a child Remained with me until I stepped outside The road I traverse reminds me of home Amid the existence I strive to create Splashes of peach in a tranquil courtyard Lyrical verses in melodies of chirping cuckoos Grandpa's armchair boasting as my grand throne Grandma brought cookies bubbling with love Mama's cushioned disdain entwined secret praises Daddy took me far into parallel universes Your sheepish smile at my naive questions Wrapping me in your blanket of divine love The stories we created under the starlit roof Windows reflecting Jasmine bushes swaying to bedside That corner behind the ancient mahogany tree Where leaves rattled in rain and breathed under snow Turned pale and crimson at our clicks of words On laps of dewdrops seeping scintillation of years Exploring distant lands to delve deep into minds A land I dream of cocooned with bliss The palatial abundance of being together With memories I cherish and days to celebrate Is nothing less than the heaven that exists In clouds I believe afterlife will be like this.
