On December 2, 2015, I woke up from a vivid dream regarding my wife who passed away from brain cancer on July 15, 2014, just six weeks after diagnosis. I wrote this immediately upon awakening on the morning of December 2.

It Was Like A Dream

I used to date Laura Maybury

We had great times together

We shared our love and intimacy

I loved her dearly, yes I did

I don't know what happened

Did I say something to offend her?

Where did she go?

I wonder what she's doing now?

I should really try to call her

The number at work was 449-5931

Oh how many times I dialed that number!

I recall her cell phone number too

Yes, I should try calling again

We should try to get back together as once before

Do you think she would be with me again?

Yes, I should call her to ask her what happened

Wait, as I recall, we were married once upon a time

Blissful it was, but it was like a dream

Now I remember what happened

She died 17 months ago

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my husband September 18,2014 to brain cancer, 14 months after diagnosed. It's been the hardest and most difficult thing I've ever been through and I do believe this second year is even harder.I will keep you in my prayers.

I so feel you here. I lost him suddenly 4 months ago, still very recent. I have had many dreams where I wake up, forgetting or feeling like it was all a dream and he is alive.... to just have to say goodbye again. I've had to feel my heart drop again to remember that he died already.

Yes, Preblehiker. It is a dream, isn't it? I wrote a post about that kind of dream months ago. Funny how this 'grieving' thing takes such similar forms in different people.

I want to say, with no pretense whatsoever, that I am so very sorry you are here. I am so very sorry for the heart-ache you feel. But I do understand it...for I am here as well...two years and 3 months after my husband of 32 years died in his sleep.

I pray that your journey is as gentle as it can possibly be. I believe that only happens when we open our souls to the wonder of life and our purpose in the world.

Peace to you, fellow traveler.
