My Happy Place

     Something new.. Ponder if you will the message here inside, for there is always somewhere, that we can go to hide.

    Enjoy your week,


Ponder if you will the message  here inside for there is always somewhere that we can go to hide.

Beyond the rainbow’s end.

My Happy Place

I have nowhere to go

but, I’m going just the same

and I’ll travel on a comet’s tail

that I have yet, to name.

I will race upon the wind aloft

and circle til I fall,

but when I land upon that spot

it will not hurt at all.

For there I’ll find my happy place

and need no more to roam

and in the valley of the dragons,

is where I’ll build my home.

I will erect, a mansion grand

from wood and stone and stuff,

that is far away from here today

but I’m sure, not far enough.

I will dine with kings and beasts alike

I will sleep until I wake

and I will have all that I want

so I’ll have no need to take.

But alas, there’s something missing

there in my happy place

I’ll have no one to share it with,

now I’m thinking, silk and lace.

Yes, I will find a princess

from some exotic land

to join me in my happy place

where we’ll stroll, hand in hand.

There we will pet the dragons

and watch my comet up in space

yes, that is how it’s going to be

when I’m in my happy place.

And I’ll not tolerate the rules of man

the bogeyman nor the dark

and I’ll fly amongst the soaring birds,

the eagle and the lark.

I will dine on fruits and candy

and bathe but when I must

and have all the knowledge I will need

to know whom not to trust.

I will mount up on a dinosaur

in a most fantastic race

and no one else shall beat me

when I’m in my happy place.

No, of the life I live today

I’ll leave not but a trace

and happiness will sure be mine

there in my happy place!
