Paradise of Dreams

Cast your dreams upon a cloud
Of liquid porcelain floating on high
Your feet soothed by soft rivulets
As you spring up to high peaks

Look around and see white oceans
Let the light air set you adrift
Into a sea of floating charms
Every cloud is an exotic paradise

Place your hand into the golden mist
Into sunsets and special revelries
Feel their smiles and refresh yourself
Life is a beautiful garden of bliss
Life is everywhere you want to be
