Mr Sandman.

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Apr 19, 2017

Inside my bed I closed my eyes
And drifted of into the night
Heading out of this world
When my mind it took to flight
Entering way into outer space
Wondering if it all was real
Or was it just a dream.
Maybe things are not always
Completely how they seem
I have an adventure in my mind
Please Mr Sandman come with me
Who knows what we will find
For tomorrow it will keep
But now my worlds a fantasy
As I fall into a deepened sleep.
So thank you Mr Sandman
You took me so far away
Then returned me by the morning
To face a brand new day.

I like your take on Mr Sandman Christopher, I hope he takes you on many more nocturnal journeys and returns you safely, so that you can continue to pen poems like this...beautiful.

Thank you Cecilia .what I like about Mr Sandman is that he takes you away from The harsh reality of life if only in a fantasy world.
