In Dreams - Be Not Afraid

In Dreams
"In Dreams I walk with you,
In Dreams I talk with you."   - Roy Orbison

Many of us will have had the experience of feeling the presence of a loved one who has passed away - even to the point of catching a familiar or exotic scent.  There is so much more to this life than we can ever comprehend.  So, whether we are just remembering in a very visceral way that soul or whether they are possibly wanting to communicate something to us is beyond our actually knowing.  Sometimes we perceive these moments as a comforting hand on our shoulder, a kiss on our forehead, a prayer for our strengthening.  In this positive dream-filled light, I wrote the following:

In Dreams - Be Not Afraid
I had a dream
The other night,
A visit from a friend,
A vision so intense and real
And as close as we had been,
There was something more
In how she looked
That I could not comprehend;

Her laughter filled
The atmosphere,
She seemed without a care,
And though I reached
To touch her hand,
I only touched the air,
Still, I caught a fragrance rare;

In soft but brilliant lightness,
In and out of view she went
And I wondered  as I drifted off,
Did I call, or was she sent;
It settled all around me,
That smile I knew so well,
And lifted my own spirit,
As back to sleep I fell;

I still can feel that warmth of hope,
That brief reunion gift;
Each morning now, it wakes with me
And brings a welcome lift
That I humbly try to pass along,
In small but smiling ways,
Little bits of sunshine
To brighten others' days,
And let them know, "You are not alone,
- Be not afraid."
