Poems about Daring to Dream

Both kinds of dreams are about the yearnings that are held deep inside us. Some of these desires are so secret that we dare not share them even with our closest friends. Those of us that dare to put our dreams down on paper are showing the courage and faith that they will come true.

    Safely secluded in a far away land

    We slip beneath the pillow's spell
