My dream has a name

Every one of my dreams comes with a message. My dream carries my thought, my assignment, my duty and my mission. Sometimes, I find it difficult to interpret my dreams and put them into action. At other times, I dream and forget. On many occasions, I have barely remembered my dreams but lack the wisdom to interpret the message that came with my dream. What do I do? How can I unfold my dreams in the language I can easily understand?
My dreams are like a sweet-smelling fragrance enclosed in a flower. They may be short, long and occasionally scary. To put meaning to my dreams is to put expectation into my thoughts. They are secret messages to my heart waiting to unfold.
Each of my dreams has a name and a distinct message. Without my interpretation of my dreams, the message and thoughts will forever be lost. Many times, I have had beautiful dreams. Like a ray of light, I managed to read the secret letter. With a sense of happiness, the joy of it I can still remember.
I have struggled to understand my duty. I don’t just dream; I bring my dreams into daylight. Dreams clear realities none can forget, bringing memories to give sweetness to life for many years.
I treasure my dreams. I don’t play away my dreams. I unlock the box of my dreams with prayers. How do you treat your dreams?
