The Dreaming Place
The Dreaming Place
 
Here I am in that special place.
That lies between heaven and earth
The place where we dream our dreams
And have, since the days of our birth
 
It’s a place where I go every night
When I finally close my eyes
The place of dreams and visions
Where we try to distinguish truths, from lies
 
It’s a place where I know that I am dreaming
Yet still I let the visions run
Scenes from places remembered
Or of things that I have done
 
Recalling childhood adventures
Dreaming of people who have gone
Creating so many mixed emotions
Like the words from lives true song
 
Are dreams meant to tell us
Of events yet to come
Or are they sent to remind us
Of things that we have done
 
I have woken up crying
Because of things that I have seen
Feelings that have been so real
Even though I know it’s all a dream
 
I wonder if I will ever understand
The workings of my mind
When sleep overtakes me
And dreams and reality become entwined.
