Our Childhood Dreams

Posted by on June 16, 2022 in General

This picture represents a frequent dream I had throughout much of my life. I could fly! All I had to do was decide that was what I wanted to do and then jump up. Soon, I would be floating softly above the trees and telephone poles. “You must believe!” I would tell everyone one who wanted to fly like me too. — It took faith. — “If you believe that you can fly, then you can!” I kept exclaiming. But no one else ever could. That was frustrating, but it did not stop me from flying almost every time I went to sleep. — It was a wonderful feeling of freedom.

I had other dreams that occurred which were not as pleasant: Suddenly realizing that I was walking naked down a busy street or at school was common. But I learned in my dream that if I as long as I acted like I was doing everything normally that no one noticed. — Another one was waking up and realizing that I had forgotten to attend school or that I had not gone to work for a very long time.

I my advancing years, those dreams have disappeared. I rarely even recall my dreams anymore. They have faded. — But there is one other memory of dreaming that I will never forget. It happened sometimes just before waking when I was 3-5 years old. — Here is a poem that mentions this experience in my new book, The Breeze of Romance: Poems for Loving Couples.


I remember Angels bathing me with song and caresses

In a dream when I was a boy.

Since, I have been looking for a woman

Who, as then,

Could bring me such joy.

There were far too many

In whom I sought fulfillment of this quest.

I was ready to surrender

And settle for much less.

But now, my search has ended.

From ceaseless wandering, I can rest.

In you,

I’ve found my Angel.

At last, again, I’m blessed.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
