    An Old Dream of an Old Song

    Sometimes a dream seems so real, even a dream taking place in a time long before you were born. I believe a dream could be a message from a loved one passed on or maybe our own spirit tryin to guide us in life. I could also be a caring kindred spirit doing the works of the heavens.
