dream of (someone or something)

1. To fantasize about doing something as one's goal or ambition. I've dreamed of being an astronaut since I was eight years old.
2. To envision someone or something in one's sleep. While recovering from dental surgery, I actually dreamed of all the foods I couldn't eat. Waking up was quite a disappointment! What does it mean if you keep dreaming of the same thing every night?
