    I Sometimes Wonder

    Is this the way they choose to visit me or is it just my thoughts of them?  I know a lot of people say they're gone and to deal with that, but sometimes I find it comforting to dream of them.  It's the only way I can spend time with them and actually interact.

    ...and Family

    I dream very vivid dreams and there are many times when the ones I've lost come back to play. It's like they are still here, laughing, loving, living in a secret world of our very own. I guess I shouldn't consider them lost though as they are still alive right here in my...
