A dream is a series of thoughts that come together while we sleep,
Although they often occur when our sleep is quite deep.
We don’t always remember them, really only the nightmares,
But those are the ones we don’t want to remember, as they give us the scares!
We have those peaceful dreams, the ones that make us happy,
Whether we are smiling with our family or skipping in a land of candy!
They are often not remembered very vividly, which is really quite sad,
But we normally have a good one the next night, which isn’t so bad!
But we also have nightmares, the dreams we can’t escape so easily,
About clowns under our bed, or strange creatures laughing eerily.
They make us sweaty, stressed and scared, even in our sleep,
Often waking us up in a flash, making us cry and weep.
But these dreams pass, and new ones will come again,
And positive vibes from them we hope to gain,
Those dreaded nightmares will always find a way into our mind,
But we can always find a way to figure them out, and leave them behind!
