I love to go to sleep at night
In my comfy bed.
I close my eyes to activate
The adventures in my head.
Sometimes it’s going back in time
To all the places I have been.
Often it’s pretty random
When my mind begins to dream.
I chat to people I once knew
Who have already gone.
We spend the night reminiscing
Before I wake and life goes on.
Sometimes I’m doing breast stroke
But I’m flying through the clouds.
I’m performing like Beyonce
Adored by screaming crowds.
I’m running like an athlete
I’m beating Usain Bolt.
I’m writing a literary masterpiece
Like the ones that Shakespeare wrote.
I’m falling and it scares me
I’m dating Donald Trump
But it’s OK this is the time
I make myself wake up.
It’s morning now, a brand new day
Yawn, stretch, then toast and tea.
I’m off to face the real world
And the adventures it has for me.
