Just love these types of dreams :)

I dreamt that I went swimming In the deep blue sea Along came a mermaid Who swam right next to me What most I remember Is she pulled me underneath Into a cave where it was dark Deep, below the coral reef She opened up my pocket And she dropped a pearl inside Then she said "Hop on my tail... We're going for a ride" She took me to a shipwreck Decaying on the ocean's floor And she wanted me to swim with her Inside the captain's cabin door Suddenly, we both swam inside And she led me to some jewels She said that they were thrown overboard By some drunken pirate fools She pointed to my pocket With the pearl stuck in my vest And she wanted me to take it out So, I could return it with the rest As soon as I returned the pearl The mermaid lost her tail Then, she walked the aisle with me Wearing a "pearl white" veil The next day before I fell asleep I was happy and full of glee Because I knew that I would kiss my wife If I jumped into the sea

A very delightful and intriguing dream ! Sad the mermaid lost her tail as you gave the pearl to her ! I try to imagine your ride with the mermaid into the deep caverns of the sea. :)

Oh what an incredibly cute poem, and Charlie, i am an absolute sucker for a happy ending. Some dreams i really want to come through, others i chase away as they must come from the cobwebs of my mind. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer

You gotta google 'Melissa the Mermaid,' Charlie. Interested in seeing if you think it's phony-baloney or beauty incarnate. ~ gw

Dear Susan, So great to see you. Thank you for your sweet and uplifting words. I could write a book on my dreams...they come so often, vibrant and sometimes a bit weird (lol) Love them though :) Warmest wishes.. ~Charlie
