The secret box of dreams

April 17, 2013
This is a secret box.
Ok, a box like this can’t be much of a secret, right?
Maybe it’s not a secret.
But it’s a place to hide our dreams,
the ones we still have, even those of us who are older.
Every once in a while it’s good to take hold
of the smooth wooden handle,
lift the cover and peek in.
What dreams are still there
even after life and heartache
have done their best to beat them down?
Pick an interesting one up.
Is there a way to make it come true?
Even as I age, I think it’s important
to still dream.
And dream big.
Because, as the sign says:
itcosts nothing to dream
and everything not to.
What’s your secret dream?
Are you willing to share it?
