A dream within a dream

Last night I had a beautiful dream that I saw the sunrise over Cape Town.

Then I realized, I did.

For all my friends preparing for exams or finding the stress of the holidays overwhelming, remember the importance of sleep for restoring the mind body. Don’t wear exhaustion like a status symbol. Take care of yourself.

Sweet Dreams.

A Dream Within a Dream

Edgar Allan Poe

 

Take this kiss upon the brow!

And, in parting from you now,

This much let me avow —

You are not wrong, who deem

That my days have been a dream;

Yet if hope has flown away

In a night, or in a day,

In a vision, or in none,

All that we see or seem

Is but a dream within a dream

I stand amid the roar

Of a surf-tormented shore,

And I hold within my hand

Grains of the golden sand —

How few! yet how they creep

Through my fingers to the deep,

While I weep –while I weep!

O God! Can I not grasp

Them with a tighter clasp?

O God! Can I not save

One from the pitiless wave?

Is all that we see or seem

But a dream within a dream?
