Darkness and Light
My Mother, Sister, Brother and I
check into a hotel room. When we
enter the room my Dad who had
passed away almost five years
ago is sitting on the bed. He has
a wide smile on his face.
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. Dad
interrupts us, "OK, ok let me say this,
sometimes I get lonely without loved ones."
It 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.
He is dressed in a dark suit. I say
"No I'm not ready to say goodbye!"
I follow Dad and this strangher into
an elevator. I look away for a few seconds.
When I look back this stranger's hair is now
white. His dark suit is glowing.
He is holding a small baby wrapped in a blanket.
I ask, "What did you do with my Dad?"
The dark stranger who is now glowing says,
"Sometimes we have to let go and allow our
loved ones to move on."
"This baby is your Dad, I am taking him to
see his new family."
The preciding was a dream. My Daughter
Amanda Smothers tells me that the Stranger
who was dark represented Death.
The glowing stranger represents Life.
This is a more detailed version of THE DREAM.
