Shangri-La

Beyond the valley sunsets,
through a nestled paradise for dreamers,
beside a crystal lagoon where the deep and green go,
my laughter embraces the wonders here.

My heart beats warm where waters flow
from a sparkling waterfall;
I bathe away the devil
and drown him in the quick;
I slumber on stardust seldom ever seen
and fly on the backs of angels.

My slumber grows warm
like lovers on soft sand;
I sing my heart’s desire
a melody in the shining of the forever full flower moon.

Only dreamers ever travel here,
and the ones who want to dream forever
never want to leave;
so close your eyes and join me now
in a Shangri-la.
