If You Dream - Poem by Meg Harrison

What if you wake up from a dream and wished it could be real.
Do not dream about it until it comes true.
Since dreams are not fairytales.
You have to work to fulfill them.

Do not live everyday with your head in a cloud.
For the day may come when you learn,
All that you have done was daydream in your life.

We could dream so much
And forget where we are and who we are.
When the dream is over
What will you become in the end.

    Dream is like a safety valve of pressure cooker, which helps the pressure from the mind to steam out. It is only a reflection of our hidden thoughts, which come out spontaneously when we are in the dream world. A fine poem. (Report) Reply
