I lost myself in a dream

Living in a fantasy, happily escaping reality.

her long black hair which lifelessly hangs over her shoulders,

her beautiful smile which could make any one's day brighter,

and her warm loving presence graced me once again

making my life



We walk, mother and daughter, down the path

enjoying every minute in each others


Her tender embrace brings me back to a place of security

and makes me feel like the most important person




If I could just bask in the moment

and never have to deal with anymore problems, worries, or drama,

my life would be perfect.

Enjoying the beautiful day,

we sit by the edge of the vivacious lake and stare

out into the distance.

Her body slowly begins to become difficult to see.

She fades off.

Back to her magnificent new home in the sky.

Tears flow out of my eyes as I realize....

until next time.

Back to GOD she goes,

and back to the sad reality of my life

I come.

My mom died of breast cancer when I was 13 years old. One day my teacher in my creative writing class asked us to write about a dream that we have had. So i wrote about my mom coming back to visit me in my dreams.
