The Difference in Night and Day


In the daytime we live in a reality, at night time, dreams prevail,

Our perceptions seem to echo truth, attempt a lifting of the veil.

Everything that we do and to say, while amid the daylight's sun,

As darkness descends, we make amends, before night is done.


Refrain:

While in our dreams, a different life, it seems,

Is a changing of the guard.

For daylight's hours, melt away,

Then reality we may discard.


The brightening sun highlights the daytime's acts, each in its turn,

While in darkness all is cloaked in blacks, not easy to discern.

Where imagination runs rampant and fast, this we yearn to last,

Overseen by every move we make, by a midnight's sun, to cast.


Refrain:

While in our dreams, a different life, it seems,

Is a changing of the guard.

For daylight's hour melt away,

Then reality we may discard.



Speak to me only of lost time in dreams, treasured everyone,

Where each star in the sky, whirls, to fly, before night is done.

Day time hours, may parade as flowers, beautiful, in the sun,

Shades of night, cascades in showers, a kaleidoscope, of fun.


Refrain:

While in our dreams, a different life it seems,

Is a changing of the guard.

For daylight's hours melt away,

Then reality we may discard.



Beautiful songs, lyrics unparalleled, we do experience in our dreams,

Masterful presentations, on all occasions, highlighted in moonbeams.

The light of day to chase them away, our awakening from sweet sleep,

Choose, we would, if only all could, it's back to dreams we should leap.


Refrain:

While in our dreams, a different life it seems,

Is a changing of the guard.

For daylight's hours melt away,

Then reality we may discard.

Discarding reality is a favourite ploy of mine, so I really love your poem, what is said in it, and your images.
