Nightmare To Dream

I close my eyes and drift off to sleep

To a world of dreams that makes me creep

Snakes and tigers, monsters and witches

All fighting for my hidden riches


I battle them hard with my mythical sword

All the time wishing I would be ignored

But more and more I see them coming

Out of the dark I have to start running


I run to a light set into the distance

Hoping for some helpful assistance

I can feel the things getting closer to me

I turn around and drop on one knee


I feel so alone with tears in my eyes

Then my riches inside start to amplify

There's a flash and a bang and the things they vanish

Back to their world, forever banished


I wake from my sleep, knowing I'm free

Safe again under my little oak tree

Oh wait a minute, my nightmare has ended

But I'm dreaming now like I had intended.
