Two nights ago I had a dream, when I awoke I turned on the computer and typed what I remembered.
This is my dream.
Let me set the scene; I was in a small apartment, (the apartment wasn’t familiar but the area it was in was), it was a little messy; I was there
with an old childhood friend. I knew him from when I was about 7yo his name was Christopher, we hung around together for about 2 years maybe. I never
spoke to him in adulthood very much, about 5 or 6 times really, although on one of those occasions he seemed pleased to see me and we reminisced about
old times briefly.
Back to the dream though, we sat in his apartment although messed up I did not mind, we were teenagers again and I had no place to go having been
kicked out of the house by my mother, He was very friendly allowing me to stay and he seemed he didn’t mind the company. We conversed for a while,
but the conversation has become quite vague since I woke up. I remember saying I was leaving and he said I was welcome back at any time and asked me
where I would stay, I told him Id probably go to a friends or sleep out at the side of the road near my friend’s house. As I said that I knew I
would probably go to my father’s house.
It jumped to the road outside my other friend’s house, we talked briefly and then I was back in the apartment getting my things together.
Before leaving, I said "I remember your older brother", I couldn’t remember his name though. He looked down at the floor, and said "ye, Michael"
Michael died a few years ago, I’m not sure how and I didn’t want to ask. I then said, " I remember your younger sister too, Angela" she to had
passed away about 6 or 7 years ago in her sleep through alcohol I’m told, He's got another brother too, he's still alive and well, although he
never came into the conversation really. He had another sister who also died but I’m not sure if I thought about her in the dream or she came to
As I was about to leave I thanked him for letting me stay, he said it wasn’t a problem and to come back if I was ever stuck again. I had a really
warm friendly feeling while talking to him again after so long, and the feeling appeared mutual, he seemed very happy to see me. That was the moment I
began to awake, I still had this nice warm feeling inside.
Then it hit me............. I remembered he had died about 5 years ago in his mid 20s, devastated by the fact his younger sister passed, he drank and
took drugs until his body couldn’t take anymore. I’ve thought about him only 4 or 5 times since hearing about his death, so he was never on my
mind a great deal. That’s why I find it strange; he appeared in my dream out of the blue, all of sudden. I did at one point feel very emotional and
shed a tear for the first time in many years. I’m not sure if there's a message in all this, I just felt compelled to write it once I had fully
I was going to post this and ask for opinions yesterday but changed my mind for some reason. I post it now because I recieved a phone call this
morning, my cousin and long time friend was found dead in his apartment in the early hours. He was only in his mid 30s, cause of death is unknown at
this moment, but he was heavily into drugs and alchohol. For reasons I wont judge him on. I also named the file I wrote it in "An old friend".
I am not trying to convince anyone of anything, nor am I looking for sympathy. Im not religious and never have been. I post it for people to offer
opinions on, if it is just a coincidence then I find it a very interesting one.
