 Elsie`s Poetry



We live two lives each and every day
Although maybe in a slightly different way,
In the day we are awake and live our lives
Bedtime is the time our other life arrives.

Sleep enters us into a world of dreams
That can hold so many different themes,
Some can be light hearted and full of fun
Where there are no dark clouds only sun.

Laughter and love often fill these dreams
Where things are real or so it seems,
We always wake up in a good mood
Feeling so happy and totally renewed.

Then come the dark dreams that cause a blight
They sometimes wake us up with quite a fright,
They leave us feeling unsettled and so scared
Nightmares from which we`d like to be spared.

Then come the people we`ve never met before
Why they`ve entered our dream we`re not sure,
We also go to places we have never ever been
At times it`s like watching yourself on a screen.

This is our private life that only we can enter
And I think our mind is the sole inventor,
It doesn`t switch off when we go to sleep
Inside our subconscious it lets us take a peep.
