As I clamber into the warmth of my bed
And sink into its snug confines,
My head comes to rest onto my comfy pillow
And suddenly everything goes black...
I am lost in a magical paradise
As I stare at the sky
The stars are as bright as the sun as they twinkle
Colours clash like swords in a fight for life or death.
I see a vast forest emitting a wonderful glow,
Intrigued, I move towards it and wander into the green ahead
I hear the gush of water in the distance
As I gaze upon a pool of gleaming water it plays a soft, sweet melody to me.
Nearby, an angry waterfall rages, sending the rapids in every direction
White froth forms near me in clumps like stepping stones
I try to step, but miss and fall into the refreshing cool,
It carries me along and through the majestic waterfall and into a large cavern.
Treasure lies in colossal piles in almost every available space
As I walk towards them, enchanted...
And then, an emerald dragon awakens from his deep slumber,
It rears up as it spots me and I close my eyes in dread.
I sit up sharply, safe in my bed,
Then I lie back down and rest my head,
Ring! Ring! My alarm clock sounds,
It's the morning now so off I bound.
