When I dream, I float away,
float away into the unclutchable sky.
I dream of shifting shadows,
shifting shadows which call my name.
When I dream I get swept around,
swept around like dry leaves in the wind.
I dream of your face scowling,
face scowling at my existence, annoyed.
When I dream I hear your taunting laughter,
taunting laughter all too real in my waking hours.
I dream of days without pain.
Without pain, you mock me in my misery.
When I dream, I dream of promised paradise,
promised paradise where you are good and kind.

These are mere dreams.
oh, that my reality and dreams were swapped,

I dream of long moments of gentle joy.
Gentle joy and hope’s promise keeps me here
when I dream.

Dreams can make or break you; keep dreaming, but remember the sweet dreams for this world is so full of pain. Timeless message. Thanks. Sharon

We need to hold tight to our dreams sometimes...they're far easier to live than the harsh reality of life. Well done.
