Dreams and Memories

By Jim Burtles, England

Here's a thought which I'm about to tell

For all of us to share and use as well.

Memories are similar to dreams

Dreams are memories, or so it seems.

Both are vivid pictures in the mind,

Either instants we have left behind,

Or moments which have not yet come true

That may give us pleasure when they do.

Dreams are future pictures we have seen.

Dreams are may be - memories have been.

Dreams can cause and then become events,

And memories are the consquence.
