As I Dream

As I sink deep into my mattress and pillow,
I now find peace.
The lights are turned off,
and prayers have been said.
As I stare out the big window,
the full moon is giving off it's magical glow.
I wish I was there,
not here on this painful earth.
I feel a change taking over by body,
a light speeding from head to toe.
Large pretty white gates appear,
the sky is filled with shiny bright lights.
I am now leaving the old for the new,
but what will the new bring.
I see roads paved in gold,
water that is crystal clear.
Birds are singing beautiful songs,
bright colors are everywhere I look.
I close my eyes to take it all in,
to smell the sugar sweet air.
As I open my eyes,
I see my old dark and dingy bedroom.
Was this just a heavenly dream,
why did I have to open my eyes.

It's a beautiful dream Paula but how wondrous life is that we are able to conceive of such splendor. The best part is that dreams can come true!! Happy Sunday xxoo

There are so many wonderful things about dreams, Paula. There are times when they are neither spooky nor filled with fear. They might provide us so much happiness at times that we don't want to wake up from them.

Dreams can be so nice. They are not always haunting or dread-filled. Sometimes they bring us such joy we hate to awaken out of them.

Thanks for your visit. Glad you like my dream write. Nice dreams are the best. If I thought I was really in heaven and then found out I was not, it would be a huge disappointment. That is what this is all about. Have a great/blessed weekend...................

It was a heavenly dream Paula, but back to reality and your comfy bed. I enjoyed the trip through those pretty white gates with you. Paula it just clicked with me, the dramatic poem is about someone considering suicide. All the best for the contest… Belle

Thanks for your visit and for your best. Glad you like my heavenly dream. It was Not about suicide. It is about a person having a dream about being in heaven. Even if it was just for a few minutes and then realizing it was just a dream. They thought they were really heaven. What a huge disappointment. I know it would be for me. Have a great/blessed weekend...................
