Morning dew softens the harshness of reality

Regrets of the past and worries of the future

Blanketing tears from the ghosts of yesterday

 

Sleep softly, young mage, and dream of painted skies

Awaken to the curbed imagination of boxed goals

Morning dew softens the harshness of reality

 

Dream vividly, angry archer, and duel every haunting demons

When the taunting realities do not disappear, envelope in

Blanketing tears from the ghosts of yesterday

 

Doze quickly, clever enchantress, and bewitch enemies into lovers

Knowing that boys will be boys and the insults sting

Morning dew softens the harshness of reality

 

Imagine expansively, brave warrior, and discover every mysteries

Ignore the familial ties that keep you ensnared to home

Blanketing tears from the ghosts of yesterday

 

Breathe as you live, magical beings of today

Dream as widely and believe as impossibly as your mind allows

Morning dew softens the harshness of reality

Blanketing tears from the ghosts of yesterday
