Early this morning (Technically since I'm writing this at 12:00am it would be yesterday morning now) I had a dream involving my grandfather who passed away in 2007. I wasn't at the funeral as I wasn't told of his passing until a few years later.
This dream actually had me waking up in tears. It's not the first time he's made an appearance in my dreams but this one was somewhat traumatizing for me. Instead of the usual ones I get where he shows up and my brain goes 'Wait, you're dead' (Which I absolutely hate) And then he vanishes, this one was much worse.
In this one, my grandfather was outside cleaning snow and I called out to him. He responded by saying 'What is it sweetie?' and I went up to him. As soon as I got in front of him, he collapsed on top of me and died.
My husband told me later on when he questioned me that I cried out in my sleep saying 'No. Why did you have to go like this?' Before waking up in tears.
I was always close to my grandfather. We were separated a few years before he died but our bond never broke. The last time I ever talked to him was when he called me to wish me a happy birthday. At least I can take comfort in knowing that although I miss him and never really got closure, the last thing i ever said to him was that I loved him.
