    Not So Much Anymore.

    But, after my dad died I would have many dreams where in the dream it was my mother that killed my dad and his ghost was trapped somewhere, and a bunch of other really weird stuff and I would cry so hard in the dream I would wake up and find that I was crying for real.

    I Didn't

    I Never Remember Why

    I wake up sometimes, crying. I don't know why. I can't remember what I've been dreaming most of the time. All I know is that I wake up with a horrible pain in my heart and tears streaming down my face. I wish I knew what it was. I know some know about my loss, but I have done...

    Occasionally I wake up crying from my dreams. A recent one was of my grandma. She passed away in December 2011. She raised me from the time I was born, and was my rock. I love it when I dream about my grandma, but it also makes me very sad. The latest dream was kinda weird...

    muffled sounds of your own sobbing... I sometimes wake up crying, though it happens less frequently of late. It is not every night my mind can conjure up something capable of putting me to tears. But it does happen from time to time. I always feel so pathetic when this happens...

    In my sleeping mind I see you there.  Sitting next to me the way we used to do, the way we used to be, but you are doing nothing. A statue in my dreams, not speaking, not moving. The night before we were going camping. You hate camping, but we were going because we had...
