PILLOW TALK WITH AMY
"Mommy, where do we go when we sleep?"
I busied myself tucking and fluffing, looking for an answer.
"We must go somewhere so where do dreams live?", she persisted.
"Now we can talk.", I said, settling into the bedside chair.
"Dreams don't really live, they are born.
We create them to give them life; to keep them warm.
In our sleep we travel on a crescent moon,
shown the way by a most lovely fairy.
to a land of enchantment.
Once there, we browse around."
"Oh, you mean like a supermarket?", she said.
"Something like that.
We pass by many kinds of dreams,
looking for just the right one to take back."
"And do we have to wait in the check-out lane?",
"No, sweetie. There are no cash registers or cashiers.
All we have to do is make sure we have just the right dream,
then we climb back on that crescent moon to travel home."
"But mommy?", she pondered. "What happens to a dream
once it's dreamed?"
I was all ready for that one.
"Why we contribute them to the Thrift Shop.
That way, someone else may enjoy dreaming them."
She snuggled into her quilt; I turned off the lamp
and was at the door when she sat up and said,
"Even bad dreams, mommy?"
Now there she had me.
I stood there a minute before saying.
"Even bad dreams need love, right?", I took a shot.
"Specially bad ones," she said sleepily,
They need love more
and if they get loved they might become good dreams.
Good night, mommy. I love you."
"Good night, my precious angel.", I said as I closed the door.
