Dreams

Have you ever had a dream

So moving

So powerful

That you never want it to end

Have you ever had a dream

That moves you

That changes you

More than anything you’ve experienced awake

Have you ever had a dream

Full of adventure

Full of wonder

That stays with you

 

 

The dream worlds you create

Are pocket universes to explore

They’re created just for you

By the person that knows you best

Helping you to face the challenges of life

When resting after the days latest battle

Tragically it can be hard to accept

That the experiences had

Meandering the subconscious

Aren’t considered real

 

 

How can something that excites

Inspires and delights

As much as a dream

Be written off as unreal

It’s a travesty of acceptance

To choose to believe

The adventure you had means less

Because it happened as you slept

Dreams are memories of events

That simply didn’t happen

But they are memories

They are uniquely of worth

Deserving to be remembered

 

 

The waking world crafts the very essence of you

Guiding you to become your true self

Dreams have that very ability

Shaping you

Making you

You

Don’t despair in the knowledge

That the adventures didn’t happen

Because the memories exist

And as long as you remember

Those dreams can continue

To stimulate and inspire

Night after night

So sleep well and never forget

There’s more to your life

In dreams

    You’ve blown my mind. Now I’m laying here thinking about the most recent dream I had, feeling out its truthfulness
