In a stranger’s dreams is where I survive?

    In a stranger’s dreams is where I survive?

    I dreamt a dream of unseen faces
    Took a visit to never-been places
    Lived a night of dark and light
    I slept a sleep, meaningful and deep
    When I awoke as daylight broke
    I began to think, is there a link?
    Just maybe, when at night what we see
    Could be another reality.

    Sometime elsewhere, am I not here but there?
    Somewhere another face dreams of another place
    When they dream is it me that is seen?
    Awaking in their dreamy mist
    Do they wonder if I exist?
    Only am I ever alive
    In night-time visions they contrive?
    In a stranger’s dream is where I survive?

    very interesting and deep makes you contemplate your very existance and others. Makes you wonder if there are other people out there wondering and dreaming about you.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
