Dreams. I’m not talking about dreams of the future or dreams what you might want to do one day. No, I’m talking about dreams that occur in your head while you sleep. Dreams that can so sweet and nice that you don’t want to wake up even though you hear the real world calling you. Then there are the dreams that are so weird and so bizarre, you are asleep thinking “what the hell is going on?” You wake up shaking your head, trying to shake the images out of your mind’s eye. There are the dreams that are based on the physical world around you. For instance, you are dreaming you have to pee and are looking for the bathroom only to wake up and realize you really do have to pee. Then there are the nightmares. The heart pounding, I have to wake up dreams. The dreams that stay with you for days. Every time you close your eyes, you fear the images will come again.

I’ve had all these dreams. Dreams so vivid and so detailed that you don’t know how or why it was playing in your head. Some dreams so vivid that I believe they are there to tell us something, to remind us of something and sometimes even answers to prayers. Dreams of people long gone, hearing their voices clear as day telling you “it’s ok” or “you’ll be fine.”

Dreams sometimes are just images left over in your brain that it’s trying to deal with while you sleep. Some dreams are images that incorporated the sounds around you. Ever dreams that you are listening to a certain only to wake up and it’s on the radio.  Dreams are also your heart’s desire. The things you wish to do or people you wish to see. Just as Cinderella sings:
A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish you, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true
