Mommy, Daddy, what happens to a dream?
Does it hide under your pillow, are they more than they seem?
Is it asleep during the day and awake at night?
Do you think its because they are afraid of the light?
Why do we have bad dreams? Do they help us get brave?
Are they different than memories and something to save?
And what is the opposite of a nightmare? Should we call it a nightlight?
Are you sure it can't hurt me when you tuck me in tight.
Do dreams have dreams that we cannot see?
Do you think they ever dream of me?
Did you have dreams where you flew?
Can you remember, have they ever come true?
If I have a dream can I keep it inside?
Can I save it and show you or will it run and hide?
When I wake up tomorrow, will they just have to leave?
Do you think they would stay and live in my sleeve?
Do dreams get older and grow up like you?
Or do they stay little forever like you want me to?
Not knowing what happens does not seem right,
I will just have to ask one when I see it tonight.
