The night returns, I close my eyes, and
The sounds around me slowly disappear.
Or better yet, they accompany me, while
I close my eyes, guiding the images I see.
I see colorful structures, a clear sky, which
Makes everything brighter.
I see an orange castle, and yellow
Walls. I see a red mountain in the distance.
I must be dreaming, I think, these colors
Are too bright, but you just smile,
And I don’t mind if it’s a dream or not,
And you say I look colorful too, and laugh.
I see a blue ocean behind us, and arches,
Arches around us, showing us the way.
I turn around, and I see elephants,
Welcoming us to the castle.
Which one is your favorite elephant?
I asked, and you say the second to the left,
Because he smiles with his whole body. I
Hadn’t noticed it until then, but you’re right
When will we go back home, I wonder,
And you seem to read my mind, as usual,
And hold my hand and smile, and we
Both know there’s no way back home.
