    An absolute truth that the poet said in this poem. It is the dreams that makes us so happy in our sleep stage where our unfulfilled dreams and unseen friends and gone friends comes in pictures in mind. So much true statement stated in a small poem is really fascinating and therefore I like this poem in its correct senses. (Report) Reply

    Dreams are reflection of our thoughts.
    of our aims
    so try to fix our thoughts and aims. (Report) Reply

    So true. If we didn't have dream's to try and make come true there would be nothing to look forward to, no where to go to, truly like a bird without flight and a frozen field that nothing can live on. (Report) Reply
