"I want to be a singer,"
is what he said to me.
This foolish one,
he did not know,
all he had to do was sing.

"I want to be a star," he said.
I smiled at him.
I shook my head.
This foolish one,
I could not teach,
for all he had to do was reach.

"I want to live in heaven."
He pointed to the sky.
His last request I understood,
and this time I replied:
"Dreamer, go on, sing your songs,
however futile they might seem.
Reach for the stars,
reach very far,
as far as is your need.
But heaven is no place to go--
you'll find I do not lie.
For heaven is no place or thing,
it's just a state of mind."

I like it.  Especially the last line.  Keep writing.

 "Life's greatest mystery isn't the meaning of life. To love and be loved is the meaning of life. Now how to attain those is the greatest mystery of all."
