Fragile Gifts


A dream may deliver an insight
that helps us to learn and to grow
Or it can be a reminder
of something we already know

Sometimes a dream is quite fragile
a gift to be handled with care
So if you value its sweetness
protect it from morning's sharp glare

A dream may arrive with abruptness
causing perceptions to shift
Or it may glide through night's stillness
to give sagging spirits a lift

Sometimes a dream is quite fragile
a gift to be handled with care
So if you value its sweetness
protect it from morning's sharp glare

A dream may serve as a warning
of mistakes about to be made
So please take heed of the message
before the day's light starts to fade

Sometimes a dream is quite fragile
a gift to be handled with care
So if you value its sweetness
protect it from morning's sharp glare

Dreams can inform our life's journey
suggesting a path we might take
Be sure you start down that pathway
when from the dream you awake

Sometimes a dream is quite fragile
a gift to be handled with care
So if you value its sweetness
protect it from morning's sharp glare

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
