I wish, if I could sleep..
Alas, mind refuses to retire.
Memories swim in the labyrinth
suffocating peace to breathe through.
However evoking soul to wish for a dream.

I wish, if I could dream..
and immerse self to feel eternal
for eyes ready to lent to have a glimpse
of a virtual world, so incredible to be true.
Though, it could be an illusion of gleam.

I wish, if I could reborn..
in that world of endless smiles
with no traces of fears and tears
to savour each moments forever anew
until let gazes to believe in the cream.

I wish, if I could die..
and never wake up from deep slumber
by freezing dream in that moment of bliss
so the soul can possess this piece of hue
and start its voyage to a divine realm.

I wished, if my dreams were real..
Despite knowing it is a sheer mirage..!
