"My Sister"

A dream from a while back I always remember clear...
My sister was slipping away from cancer as I tear...
Loosing my dad three years back was still fresh in my head...
So going through this again, all the same words can be said...
As I slept through the night images would fill my dreams...
My sister and family all chatting as all was ok it seemed...
The entire dream my sister stood by the door as I pleaded
her to sit and rest...
She kept saying I have to go as I wondered if this was a test...
She opens the door and starts to walk out as I stood to hold her
I'm ok she claimed as I could feel her pull away ,but with no harm..
It was my dad on the other side of the door saying she is with me now...
As I woke that morning I felt confused , the phone rang as my heart 
My sister had passed away through the night, a destination that couldn't
be stopped...
But to know where she was and who was with her eased my pain a bit..
Still I miss her so as remember her smile as I sit and reflect...

    Congratulations on your win. OMG i got goose bumps, emotional n a faraway connection. People close to us or vice versa connect in an undefinable way..... i know it sounds funny to mention but i'd anyway...i am die hard MJ fan, and i often get a vision of him dressed in white with his hands wrapped to his chest , with a half smile and he's looking at me with peaceful eyes, this happens everytime i close my eyes n think of him. goose bumps again!

    Congratulations on your win with this heartfelt dream or was it? Sometimes we think they are dreams but instead a message from beyond. Either way it sounds as if it eased your pain. Thank you for sharing, I truly enjoyed the read. Caryl
