I HAD A DREAM

I had a dream last night…

I know dreams aren’t always as they appear…

this one had me teaching……and I’ve been retired for 6 years.

 

For me to remember a dream…is extraordinarily rare

and I don’t remember this entire dream…just bits and pieces here and there.

 

When I awoke on the other side of my dream…ready to begin my day

I had to stop and wonder what my dream was trying to say.

 

Perhaps it was reminding me…trying to make me comprehend

that even in retirement…teaching never ends.

 

That there is always someone out there…someone I can reach

someone with whom to share my wisdom…someone I can teach.

 

Another reason for my dream was easy to discern…

to remind me I will always be a student…who has a lot to learn.

 

Reminding me in life through adventures big and small

no teacher…no person in this world…

ever knows it all.

 

Reminding me in life…through my successes and my flops

if I’m lucky…if I’m truly blessed

my learning never stops

 

Reminding me wherever I go…east, west, north or south…

A good teacher is one whose ears…get as much exercise as their mouth…

 

Yes, I had a dream last night…

that I was still teaching

and still learning too…

and I woke up this morning realizing…

 

that dream keeps coming true.
