As we grow older our lives becomes complicated. Achieving goals and the responsibilities of adulthood becomes our main concern. We start living a very harried life and even when we lay our heads to bed at night our minds just wouldn't rest and sleep becomes elusive. If this is happening to you then this poem should be the right gift for you.

Tonight as you close your eyes
You will feel the thrills of childhood rise
Things you thought you’ve left behind
Will come back to fill your mind

The beauty in very simple things
The wonder that innocent joy brings
The magnificence of the first day of spring
Like a magical ride on life’s glorious wing

Forget the burden of the day
Problems from your mind shut away
In dreamland come and play
Tonight everything will be okay

A sprinkle of dream dust is cast on you
Enter the world of dream anew
Let the child within you see the view
A gift from the Sandman to you
