The dictionary defines a dream as
a "Series of thoughts or visions during sleep."
dreams are our brains way of organizing, storing, and remembering what we have seen the day before.
dreams sometimes help us work out our issues
and emotional problems.
Most people, however, think
dreams are unimportant
and do their best to ignore and forget them.
my own dreams have had a lot of visitors.
While my brain has been remembering what happened the day before
and my heart has been working out my issues and problems,
I keep seeing my Dad, Mom, Nana, and friend Kai.
The funny thing is all of them are deceased.
None of them have been a part of my daily life for years now.
While I remember them all with love,
I have no issues or problems to work out with any of them.
Why then do they visit my dreams night after night?
When I see my Dad, Mom, Nana, and Kai
they all seem younger and healthier than they were when they died.
They have no pain in their faces
and their smiles share only love and joy.
They seem to be there only to comfort me,
to reassure me,
and to live it with love.
Each time I awake after one of these dreams
I feel at peace again
and thank goodness for their visit.
Maybe there is more to dreams
than just what the dictionary and scientists say.
Maybe our dreams have a way
of letting us see out of this world
and into the next.
Maybe our loved ones come to us in our dreams
to let us know
that they still love us,
they still are watching over us,
and they are waiting to see us once again
when our days on this earth are done.
Maybe time like death is just an illusion
and only love is real.
I wish you all sweet dreams.
