4 Shades of Blue – 4

His memory hasn't faded: it's so clear 
He can recall what never even happened. 
Is this imagination? No -- it's more 
A different home and land. He has a map and 
He goes there as he can. He needs his family, 
And they need him, as well. This busy season 
Is full of light and cold and fantasy 
And he can have them all, and need no reason.

For what is worse: to keep things null and real, 
Or fill them up with what we'd like to feel?
