Fragile Gifts - Poem by Mark Bratlie

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
