Portable Dreams

I don’t want to lose my dreams

So I keep them in a box

I know they will be safe in there

My box has lots of locks

I do this as one once escaped

And my dream I had to chase

But the dream, sadly, got away

A dream I can’t replace

And then last night in a dream

I told them all to flee

To see what they could achieve

When free from custody 

But every dream stayed in the box

So I told them all to – Shoo,

Get out now and find someone

To make you all come true –

We have, they said, it’s you

I will, I thought, when I woke up

With a problem I didn’t foresee

My dreams will stay locked in the box

As I have lost the key
