Perchance to Dream

Written by Sylvia

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine fields abloom with daises, moving gently
To the rhythm of the wind, swaying to and fro
With petals of yellow and white glistening with the morning dew

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine mountains standing tall and majestic
The pale blue sky as their canvas to paint a picture for us
As they stretch across the horizon in all their grandeur

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine rivers winding their way through the countryside
Their serene waters rippling around the bends and crooks
Carved into the dark rich soil by their eroding tides

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine lakes with their mirrored surface unbroken
Except by the old man sitting on the peaceful shore
Skipping stones across the lake as he did when he was a child

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine the beautiful trees with their leaves whispering
Come and sit beneath my canopy for a while
And listen to the memories left behind for me to share

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine children young and innocent and open to the world
As they take delight in the games that they play
The enjoyment etched into their smiling faces

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine an old man and woman as they sit on their porch
Gently rocking in the swing, feet pushing against the floor
Talking quietly to each other about times of long ago

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine puppies and kittens as their eyes begin to open
And they explore the wondrous world around them
Filled with balls of yarn to unravel and old shoes to chew

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine the sun, the moon and the stars
Each with their own time to bring light to our world
From the dusky dawn to the dark of night

When I close my eyes and perchance to dream
I imagine God’s world as He created it for us to discover
Astounded by the beauty and splendor of all His creatures
And know any mortal man can never duplicate them
