There is a place where I go that no one else knows,
where my stories abound and excitement grows.
A place out of reach in any man's hands,
safely secluded in a far away land.
Beyond the grasp of those who may plunder,
the wealth of its power and its life changing wonder.
I go alone to my secret place, never leaving a trace,
for someone to follow and discover my space,
where I keep my secrets, my fears and my regrets,
away from the world and all of its threats.
It's mine and mine alone!
It's the only place I can call my own.
I treasure the moments spent in this realm,
where anything is possible and I'm at the helm.
The place I describe is all that it seems…
It's a magical place, I call my dreams!
