I’ve been having this dream, lately.
It’s not your standard nightmare or pizza dream. It’s the kind of dream that, when you wake up, you wish you could’ve slept for a few more minutes just so that you could truly enjoy it for a little while longer.
I realize that this doesn’t make any sense to you. But to me it makes all the sense in the world.
To me, this dream gives me something that I’ve always wanted. Something I’ve longed for all my life. A reality that I’ve always hoped for. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to live through, and in those few fleeting, dreaming moments, I get to actually experience them.
You can laugh at me all you want. But every time I get ready for bed I hope that I dream something similar to the one before. And if I’m lucky, if I’m really lucky, it’s even better than the one before.
I know that with your curiosity, you’d want to know what happens in the dream.
Would you believe me if I said that I don’t remember?
Because I don’t. All I remember is the feeling that I get when I wake up. The sadness and the deep despair that washes over me, wave after wave. And what I theorized from these particular feelings is that if I wake up disappointed by the fact that I actually woke up, then this dream must have been worth remembering, and worth the extra, longed for moments.
All I remember from the dreams are the feelings that I go through, the feeling of fulfillment and just calmness and actual, genuine happiness. I’d feel complete, but I just can’t remember the visuals.
Do you understand what I’m trying to say? Does this happen to you when you have a dream? You just know that what you dreamt was a good dream, but you just don’t remember anything about it.
There’s a reason why I’m telling you all this. Because today something happened.
Today you told me you loved me. And I felt all those things from my dreams.
And now I know what I’d dream about, and that it actually came true.
