Brown plain wrapped gift with bright red bow,
my heartbeat shifts as visions glow.
Contains sweetness for me and you,
gummy fruit streets, taffy path chews.
Confection sprinkles twinkling rain,
taste buds tingle with gleeful gain.
Bubble gum home, pixie straw beams,
sofa of sponged glazed bear claw dreams.
A giant bed made of fudge bars,
caramel sheets wrap sleep with sparks.
Marshmallow pillows comforts head,
warm mattress from banana bread.
Powdered sugar dust in the air,
candy coated thoughts everywhere.
Unwrapped surprises, minds could see,
delicious images fly free.
