Each And Everyday

In my private world
Where my imagination dwells
I can visualize a magical place
Where wishes come true
Sad memories in my mind
One by one are erased.

Departing my imagination
A thought occurs to me
To appreciate my family
Begin returning affection
They have given me
Each and everyday.

I must open my eyes
Into the real world
Before my neglecting
Causes it to be gone
And my realizing
Much too late
I've been left alone.
