The Upside Down by Michelle Chapa

Magical dew drops falling from the sky
Winter whispers in a dark and different way

You will find the nebulas dancing
in and out of sight

Real or imagined
we slip and slide
while the giant planets
sleep in the solar night

Together we dance
and we bathe in
the space of time

Do you know who you are?

How you shine

In the upside down
In the moonlight
where the mermaids swim

This land of make believe
The creatures here know your name

Wing-ed things calling from afar
their magic burnt on my soul
forever

Ancient warlocks casting shadows
Their black cats singing
to the violins

Now it's raining big blue diamonds

I see your reflection
in my shadow
guiding me
through life

This time
I know how to
make you stay

We'll swim in the oceans
of the magic of space
and we'll shine We'll shine
