There she is, my beautiful companion,
With her silver tail, swishing around,
Twilight, my girl, is a champion,
Beckoning me with the neighing sound.
Out I go from my bed,
Various notions filling my head;
What adventure could it be?
When I cross the splendid sea.
Off I go, on Twilight's back,
To another enchanted land.
Carrying my heavy rucksack,
I'm entering Uniberry Land.
I leap off Twilight's mane,
Excitement and happiness fills me.
It is really insane,
I can't believe what I see.
Flowers blossoming happily,
Birds twittering round and round,
Blueberry bushes flourishing merrily,
Making lots of sound.
Kind people everywhere;
A whole land in peace;
Lots of entertainment over there,
Let the joy increase.
A waterfall of mango juice,
In a forest of strawberry trees.
With the magic to cure any bruise,
Accompanied by a fruity breeze.
Soft tender hands stroked me,
While the sunlight kissed me.
Slowly I opened my eyes to see,
My mum whispering, 'Good morning,' to me.
