Are you a dreamer? I am. I have no idea what a day without dreaming would be like. What fills up the mind without dreams? All I know is…I don’t want to know!
Dreams refresh me. They give me hope and fill my days with anticipation of something beautiful to come. I also believe dreaming keeps me young at heart and feeling energized. I don’t think I’d trade dreaming for anything.
I’m also a hopeless romantic. I looked up a few definitions of hopeless romantic and I like the one I found in dictionary.com/e/slang.
“A hopeless romantic is a person who holds sentimental and idealistic views on love, especially in spite of experience, evidence, or exhortations otherwise.”
I am a dreamer and a hopeless romantic. And I think they are perfect together. Like butter in my coffee, they compliment one another. I think my poem below illustrates that pretty well. They make me who I am and I’m happy with that.
As the autumn breeze brushes against my skin,
It whispers softly to me,
Of dreams and schemes and mysteries,
And takes me to places I long to be.
Spring rain falls gently from heaven above,
With my arms outstretched, I twirl around,
I raise my face to greet each drop,
And I find myself dancing in Paris town.
Or I’ll visit a castle across the seas,
Where romance never dies,
Drink ale in a pub in the emerald green,
Or ride a black stallion beneath crystal blue skies.
I dream of a place to call my own,
Set deep within the spruce and pine,
A cabin enclosed by drifts of snow,
Built from my heart; true love’s design.
Dreaming a simple dream or two,
During the night, or in the day,
Gives love, and hope, and inspiration,
Painting rainbows in skies of ashen gray.
So I encourage you to dream a dream,
No boundaries there to trap you within,
To experience love on a river walk,
Under the moonlit sky, the magic begins.
As for dreams, they truly release me,
From troublesome day-to-day woes,
And take me wherever…whenever,
My yearning heart desires to go.

Some dreams I’ve had to put in God’s hand because I need His help. That requires a great deal of patience on my part. Others I will work toward in making a reality. Determination behind the dream is key.
I hope you dream. Life doesn’t always have to be black and white. Dreams color your world.
Thank you for stopping by! I am sick with influenza so I’m not drinking coffee currently. But I hope you enjoy your cup!
Be well! ♥️
