Think of some place or time.

I want to remember that day by the stream, on those rocks. I told you about my nightmares.

You told me, "Close your eyes." I closed my eyes. You told me, "Just listen." I heard the water rushing over the rocks, I heard peace. I heard the wind in the trees and the constant sound of the water. The sound of nothing bad ever happening.

I opened my eyes and you smiled and told me, "Think of that whenever you wake up from your nightmares."

I hope you never have bad dreams. I hope that whenever you wake up alone and afraid with no one there to comfort you, that you have a memory of a place or a time where you felt safe. And I hope then, that you aren't scared anymore.

Sweet dreams.
