A lavender sky

Shadows caressing the clouds

and millions of laughing stars

The vivacious sun ignores the moon's protests

and takes her into his arms

I lay, entranced by the wonder around me

The wonder that exists within my mind

Beyond the worry, beyond the woe

The happiness that you so desperately seek

Exists within you

Close your eyes, and dig beyond the pain

And when you return to reality

Return as the person you found in your dreams

She is just as smart

Just as beautiful

Just as real 

Only now, you can see it too

And you will realize that all you have to do to create a masterpiece

is look into the mirror
