The Dream

entry picture

The following is a dream. In a small way I hope the ending comes true



My Mother, Sister, Brother and I check into a hotel room.

When we enter the room my Dad who passed away

almost five years ago is sitting on the bed.


We ask, "Daddy why are you here?" He says "I wanted to

see my family." We are overcome with emotion and hug

him. We are all talking at once.


It's seems as if only a few minutes have passed and a man

walks into the room. He says, "It's time to go." He has

coal black hair. I say, "No I'm not ready to say goodbye!"


I follow my Dad and this stranger into an elevator. I look away for

a few seconds. When I look back this strangers hair is now white

and glowing. He is holding a small baby wrapped in a blanket. I ask,

"What did you do with my Dad?"


He says "This is Your Dad. I am taking him to his new family."

Such a strange loss, and even stranger finding. Tommy

Bloody brilliant Shirley
I would have preferred to have seen this trimmed to a more poetic style but the images are absolutely wonderful.
Oh I wish I'd had that dream.
