When we are in the mourning stage and still trying to cope up with grief over a deceased loved one, the chances of seeing them in our dreams is more likely. Maybe because they’re always in our mind and the sadness in our heart have not dwindle yet so these emotions and thoughts are being conveyed to and sink-in to our subconscious minds.
I’m still grieving for my brother though his remains has been buried few days ago. And so I had a “reality-like” dream of conversing with him and when I woke up I ended up writing this poem;
I dreamed of you last night, my dear brother,
You were listening to every sad word I uttered,
As I told you that I missed you, you smiled and tapped my shoulder
“Don’t cry for me sister, for I am now with the Heavenly Father.”
“The days granted to me on earth are done,
I‘ve ran the race so well, the foe I have overcome
Now I am here with the Savior to get my victor’s crown
Don’t grieve for me but rejoice though I am gone.”
“The flesh I’d left lying beneath the soils,
Will someday rise when it hears Jesus’ voice,
All the pains, struggles, tears and all sorrows,
Will be no more in the place that’s so glorious.”
“So why mourn for me and cry because I’m gone?
The place I’m in is far better than where you are,
Grieve for our loved ones who still doesn’t understand,
That life is short and someday in God’s presence they will stand.”
JOHN 11:25 “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”
REVELATION 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
I miss my late brother but his message in my dream is clear, I should not grieve for him for he is already in perfect peace in the place where he’s at now, for he has seen the glorious presence of the Living God.
