Daybreak and a Visit

Sunrise Through the Barren Tree Branches

Today’s sunrise was spectacular

it reminded me that life goes on

and every day is an opportunity

to give thanks.

Today I would like to give thanks

for the visit I received

two nights ago.

My Love came in a dream

He woke me up from a dead sleep at 3 AM. In the dream he was telling me to move over because I was on his side of the bed and he wanted to get in.

He was dressed for bed. I felt him sit on the bed before he spoke. I smelled his favorite cologne, even after he disappeared.

I don’t have the talent that my Love had of being able to go back to sleep and get right back into dreams. So of course I was crying when I woke up, and couldn’t go back to sleep.

But last night I slept soundly and woke up to a gorgeous sunrise

to remind me

to seize the day

and be thankful.

    That’s beautiful. I’ve heard of others having similar experiences. My wife’s cousin can still smell his mom or dad’s fragrance once in a while, even after a couple of years.
