Not all dreams come true
Nor is this necessarily a bad thing
We imagine much but know very little
(If anything at all, truth to tell)

Then we remember it again
And realise we had forgotten it
It depends on where the dream was planning on taking you. Nightmares are dreams and I’ve escaped temporarily from finding the end. What that would be – bad comes to mind.
Even when we believe we are awake rather than asleep we have no certainty of our “reality” beyond the existential/phenomenal and without anything to compare it with we can never know we are ever in anything but a dream.
I believe in the state of dreams. One never is certain what the reality state is. I had a thought the other day, I felt it was profound, to me at least. As succinctly stated as possible, all events in our Universe whether small or grand, have as many stories as there are those who tell them. And I will add, even if someone does not tell their interpretation of the story does not mean it does not exist. It just floats around in dreams not recalled or reality not registered yet. Stories are fractured dreams of reality.
Looking back – I’m glad that some of my dreams didn’t come true.
That seems a sensible conclusion. 🙂
