Draw Me A Dream

a poem by Katie Gabrielle

a poem of the imagination

Draw me a dream
Give me a pencil
Paint stars in the sky
Show me the way
And maybe I’ll stay
Make the sky blue
Or maybe pink
Send some moonbeams
And a cool space ship
Add a few stars
Don’t forget your telescope
For your trip
I want to dream!
Before I go
Across the desert
I shall wander
Just make sure
To wake me
Before I miss
My favorite dinner!
I want to dream
I want to fly
I want to see
What’s out there
Beyond my pillowcase
Across the sky
And maybe the universe
But get me home
Before my teddy bear
starts to cry
It’s fun to dream
And make believe
It’s just a game
It’s just a pencil
So you can play
If you believe
If you see the world
Just like a child.
