The Best Dream I Ever Had

Updated: Jan 1

When my sister died several years ago, I didn't get to say goodbye. I didn't get to tell her all the things I wanted her to know. I know she knew how much I love her, and I know she felt the same, but I wish I had said it more, and I wish so badly I could have said goodbye to her. And when my brother died, the last thing I said to him was, "I'll see you tomorrow," because I honestly thought I would. I didn't get to say goodbye to him, and he didn't get to say goodbye to me. It's one of the heavier lumps that keeps me weighted down in my grief.

And then one night I had the most wonderful dream...

"The Best Dream I Ever Had"

by Gabrielle Elise Jimenez

I had a dream last night and you were there

I couldn’t see you

I couldn’t hear your voice

But you were everywhere

I felt you in the wind

That wafted through the trees

And then I knew why you were there

You came to say goodbye to me

I pulled myself together

I told you it was okay

And I gave you permission

To tell me what you came to say

And while I never heard your words

I knew they would make me cry

You came to say you were sorry

For never saying goodbye

And when I woke up the next morning

I was a little less sad

I felt peace inside my heart

It was the best dream I ever had
