On Turning 24

When dreams collide with fairy-tales
A fantastic world awakes…
Where snails fly past a sleeping earth
Giraffes stretch out their necks,
Fireflies glow brighter still
Before the morning breaks.

A little girl skips cloud to cloud
Daisies in her hand,
The alarm rings, she’s twenty four
Her world comes to a stand.

When suddenly, a fairy, sits gently by her side,
The girl smiles, shuts her eyes, and again she’s a child.
