Felicitous Circus

From a dream I slowly rise
to a realm in a place with gold and azure skies.
I feel the universe is all mine
and wonderous days of youth shall always guide me kindly high.

I see my inner self as a balanced whole.
I'm free to trust with my new perennial soul, new perennial soul.
While I'm centered here I will dance and sing;
with subtle energy I now sense everything.

Beautiful thoughts of love are in my mind,
all at tune to a sound with shapes of every kind.
Then as the light we see beams far beyond the cloud
the tones sound very clear, but not from being loud.

We blend into an orchestra of celestial sound.
We join this orchestra in a never ending round, never ending round…
and suddenly there's the harmony
that all my life I've sought so deep inside of me.

It's here we all can be so kind;
I know this peaceful place knows the rhyme and time.
There's room for everything and everyone
to learn what magic is so soon they all will come.
