what is real..

Thinking over the comparisons of Dream, Fantasy and Reality. Where does the line get drawn? With the words of "If you can dream it you can achieve it" being spoken from the peanut gallery just what can be achieved and what should be just let go to history and memory? A dream is something that can be changed into a goal and a goal a reality..but fantasy? Dare we dream?

Can a fantasy become a dream and eventually become ones reality? (and still be sane in the process?) -;-)

Wanting that special person in your life. Dream? Fantasy Reality? Loving someone and BEING in love with them. Plenty of people love their significant other but are they still in love? Can that be maintained in a marriage or is the spark lost to everyday concerns and stress? I loved someone and remember what it was like to be in love with them. Looking forward to the time they would walk in the door, maybe a little glance across the room full of people, a gentle caress as they passed by, or just to come snuggle with you and no words spoken no words need to convey the feeling between you. A "dream" in today's hustle and bustle world? A "fantasy" as it doesn't exist anymore and I expect to much? A "reality" as it does exist and takes loving care and hard work everyday to keep it and strong and renewed? If it doesn't exist may I stay single for the rest of my days. but it does as I have held it in my arms. Something so precious is very very rare and I let it go. I said goodbye. but it does exist and one day Gods grace will smile upon me when he bids me ready for such..

Until then I must wait and endure. But the reward is far greater than I could ever hope for.
