Men Can Dream Too!

Updated on August 28, 2015

Dreams from far away brought closer....

Are there truly different kinds of smiles?
Are there truly different kinds of smiles? | Source

Some dreams are in the eyes....

What is in a glance?

Dreams are there, and waiting still.

Unrealized, yet.

Yes, men can dream too!

When I was young so long ago,

I dreamed I would marry an American Indian princess.

It was a persistent daydream, eyes open, wide awake.

"A fantasy" some would say.

But they don't know that men can dream too.

When I thought "It's time to get married.

"She's a good woman, a good mother-candidate."

I married and found she was indeed,

and a good sister-candidate too.

Brother-Sister (that kind) can be legally Husband-Wife.

But, brothers and sisters can be miles apart unchanged.

Husbands and wives (the real kind) can't accept that.

Wives and husbands (the other kind) part.

It's too short a step to "you choose yours, I mine."

But dreams live on, at least the wide awake kind.

One day, in a land far away, the dream rode by.

Wide awake dreams can be pursued.

I thought I knew why I was there.

God knew better.

      I believe dreams also inspire us to achieve more and to keep going through life and keep believing. Finding true love is one dream really coming true and in this life not everyone finds that one significant other. I was lucky to find my soul mate.

      What a beautiful love story. They say behind every good man is a woman. And, behind every good woman is a good man.
