A Bed Of Clouds

I sleep in the clouds, dream in the sky,
I'll keep dreaming as life passes me by,
I think my dreams keep me sane,
I dream of happiness, a life without pain,
some people say I'm stuck in this place,
and I'll never go anywhere,
but in my dreams I've already been there,
I know some day I'll have to wake up,
but I feel the real world is more like a nightmare,
I'm safe in my closed eye wonderland,
this poem goes to all the dreamers that understand,
no matter what they say...
keep your dreams but don't dream your life away,

My daughter is a drug addict. She had a love filled and happy childhood. Then tried drugs with friends and is lost to me and her son. She had dreams......was bright, kind and beautiful. Heroin and Meth have taken it all away.........for now.

I know she is still in there. I know she still dreams of a happier place. I dream of it too for her and for us. But we do tend to sit and wait..........dreaming. Its time for some of us to live again and hope she will join us.

I read this poem. It has brought me to tears but also the realization that we too have given up our dreams waiting for her to fulfill hers. We love and miss you Anna.

This is an amazing poem. I know what this person is talking about. I sometimes too don't want to wake up from my perfected dream, and enter this nasty world.
