come with me to the stars and planets

fly through the night far away

I'll let down my hair and you will watch

as I transform from girl to unicorn

my horn is glowing burnished gold

my blood runs silver beneath my skin

colors dance in the sky in greeting

would you like to see another time?

it's in my eyes - just one wish

to the court of King Arthur

or dragons and battling sword-brandishing knights

or distant worlds with many moons afloat in the clouds

or oceans filled with every shade of luscious blue

just one dream and it is yours

rainbow beams, stars and snowflake-laden planets


tomorrow when the sun shines brightly

you will dismiss it all as a mere fantasy

remember when you look at me

and see gazing back at you

the eyes of the unicorn
