What is a Dream?

"What is a dream?
You've asked me so many times
And I'm sorry that I never answered
But the truth is, I didn't know
A dream can exist as many things

It is something that you've aspired
For as long as you can remember
It is that of what you hope for

A dream can be as simple
As the many dancing images
That travel through your head at night

It can be an important message
That you receive through
Those very same dancing images

Maybe a dream
Is what you are when you die
Gracefully floating through
Every part of space and time

Or maybe a dream
Is simply a metaphor
Just like you, dear
You are my dream

But when you truly,
Deeply think about it
It isn't as insane as it seems
A dream is simply
Anything you dream it to be
