I had a dream last night.
My friend and I were in her car driving down PCH. Her shiny black karmann ghia.
We were laughing and joking and smiling. The windows were down. It was fantastic.
The radio was on, the sun was shining. After driving for a bit, i turned to her as she looked at me with her radiant smile. She was beaming.
I said, “I miss you, Crystal. Why did you have to go so soon?”
She gave me a sympathetic smile and didn’t say anything.
I told her i loved her.
The wind stopped and everything became still…
and then i woke up.
Just when you think the grieving process is smoothing out, you get hit with something like this and it’s all new again. Even though it’s sad, i am thankful i got to feel like i said goodbye.
