Here I often do sit and think,
Pushing my mind past the brink.
Maybe my mind has snapped,
Or my head I did truly crack.

Our lives are much to short,
To spend locked up in a fort.
It should be love and laughter,
From now and forever after.

I think that you should know,
There's nowhere I wouldn't go.
Nothing I would not do,
Just to prove my love to you.

I would claim for you an ocean,
Just to sit and watch it's motion.
I would reach up and capture a star,
It really can't be all that far.

I would give you every cloud,
If it would make you proud.
Every fish and every plant,
I don't know the meaning of "I can't"

Each and every tree,
That you or I can see.
I shall get them, not for me,
Just so I can give them all to thee.

Every breath that I take,
Only so that I can make
You see me standing here,
I've always been so near.

I don't want to sleep,
If it means I can't keep.
My thoughts always on you,
Until the night is through.



 It's fantasy. But if it contains a piece of me doesn't that make it as real as I am?
