My Unicorn

The sky looked red and gray and blue
and where the sun had gone, who knew?
But the beauty I saw before my eyes
was enough to make the hardest man cry.
a horse with horns, but white as could be
so magnificant,stood there gazing at me!
The creature was enchanted, I was almost afraid
but the look in it's eyes gave the truth away
There was a calm that settled over me the likes I never knew
And everthing I ever believed,I suddenly knew was true
Then the magic left as abruptly as it came,
I wondered for a moment if I were merely insane
I realize now it doesn't matter either way
the beauty is mine from now since that day
And whenever I'm feeling the least bit forlorn,
I just close my eyes tight, and picture my Unicorn.
