Sometimes when I sleep at night, I’m reliving a past,
But when I awake, those visions never seem to last.
So I try really hard, to fall asleep again,
Or try to write it all down with the closest pen.
Every dream is a thought that helps guide us through,
To another place, or something better in view.
There are times when life is much better, when we are asleep,
Holding on to moments, we wish we could always keep.
Dreams are things at times we don’t even realize,
Some things that are hidden deep down inside.
Bringing us back to a forgotten place,
Or to feel that special someone’s embrace.
I lay down every night and close my eyes,
Looking for someone’s face that I recognize.
Sometimes I see it and other times I won’t,
Sometime I just lay there all alone.
At times, dreams hit us when we’re awake,
Those are times we cannot mistake.
For a daydream is just as real, as a dream at night,
Sometimes when we dream with our eyes open, we can see the light.
We often see the light of time gone by,
Hoping somehow to change it, if we try.
Other times we hope for things that can be changed,
If only some how that can be arranged.
So tonight, when you close your eyes and start to dream,
Think about everything that you may have seen.
What would you change and what would you let be,
Or is there something else you’re wishing to see. – FH
