A dream is a wish your heart makes.
Read it again without the melody we all know.
Try reading it like any typical sentence.
A dream IS a wish your heart makes. When you’re fast asleep.
I guess I hadn’t really thought about it - I just always sing the music and never think about the words - but it’s kind of interesting, isn’t it?
It makes me wonder what sweet dreams lay just beneath the long lashes of sleeping babes. What worlds do they conjure, what wild things do they see? But I wonder most about who they meet in their dreams.
I like to think that earthside babies have a connection to those who are no longer here. Every time there is a wish made for those lost, together they meet on the soft clouds of a dream and think of ways to help heal the hearts of those who miss them most. That’s why babies always seem like they just... know.
A dream is certainly a wish your heart makes.
And no matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true.
