~::~ Resplendent dreams ~::~ 

She lay numb in resplendent dreams

Fairylands and orange sunbeams

Blown away with the zephyr slow

Love unknown whisper voices low


Away from loneliness that screams

She lay numb in resplendent dreams

Mellow moonlight and dancing trees

On rainbow waters waddling geese


Frothy rivers with gentle waves

Pouring out heart’s innermost craves

She lay numb in resplendent dreams

Whilst a tiny ray of hope gleams


Amidst the chaos of her life

She found visions sublime and rife

Emanating from joyful streams

She lay numb in resplendent dreams
