Before me in a field of green,
Appears a radiant shining dream,
It dances around so light and fair,
As if it glided upon the air.
A horn so brightly golden it gives off light,
So poor of heart, yet full of life,
My unicorn dances off into the night.
'Come back, come back, come back,' I say,
'Please come back so we can play'
Slowly she turns and shakes her head,
'I cannot stay with you and play but,
I leave you with this instead a pure heart,
A peaceful soul and dreams yet to be born,
Just don't ever stop believing in the unicorn.'
