When Does a Dream Begin

Postby Ryan » Thu Feb 25, 2010 12:23 am

When does a dream begin?
Does it start with a goodnight kiss?
Is it conceived or simply achieved
When does a dream begin?
Is it born in a moment of bliss?
Or is it begun when two hearts are one
When does a dream exist?
The vision of you appears somehow
Impossible to resist
But I'm not imagining seeing you
For who could have dreamed of this?
When does a dream begin?
When reality is dismissed?
Or does it commence when we lose all pretense
When does a dream begin?

I think that a dream begins when the longing of your heart challenges reality.

Heidi, this sentence is beautiful and I think that you should post it for Deep Spirits Quotes.

Heidi, a very nice thought. It's actually a very smart though.

Ryan, dreams. Yes, maybe that is why we are all present here at DS.

Dreams. The very altruistic part of being a human. (note: not a specimen of mankind though)

When I doth lay low on my tumult cot,
Or walk the streets with silence beseeched;
Making every pass into my soul,
And wondering what a world would be in it.



Love,
Maheep.

Ryan, that poem is beautiful!

Heidi... pure beauty once again!
I would remove the "I think that" part and post the rest as a quote.

Love to all DS dreamers. <3
You are beautiful people.
