We often dream.
of building castles in the sky,
when our everyday world –
makes us too weary.
When life and love like reality,
come crashing through the door,
to suddenly make the day –
seem gray and ordinary.
When we can’t find,
the love we seek,
we look for escape –
in castles in the sky.
There are different routes to take,
like daydreams, we can make
and so we look toward the clouds above –
to let fantasy take us on a magic carpet ride.
Those castles in the sky,
like passing clouds with white sails,
tinged in pink and silver –
bringing the hope of brighter days.
if we let our daydreams –
take us beyond reality.
Daydreams can take our thoughts,
to faraway places,
of loving days and friendly smiles –
so far from here in castles in the sky.
Daydreams and sweet times,
upon cotton candy clouds,
flying on the wings of doves –
over the twinkling stars above.
Daydreams building castles in the sky,
never stopping to wonder why,
living moment to moment,
opening our hearts to love and joy.
So as we make our way,
through life day by day,
let’s give ourselves the time to find,
the love and happiness we seek –
among those castles in the sky.
