Dreaming to See My Mom Again

In previous posts, I’ve written about the handful of dreams I’ve had about my mom since she died. They are few and far between. I don’t dream a lot, and when I do I don’t remember my dreams. When I have dream about my mom, I write it down because it’s something I treasure. A glimpse of my mom for just a minute. A moment with my mom again, even if it’s in my dreams.

About a month and a half after my mom died, a poem came to me while I was driving. As soon as I parked, I found an envelope or receipt in my car and wrote the poem down. After a few refinements I shared what I had written, eventually placing it on this blog a few years ago. Today, I shared it on SLAP’D.

That poem was one of the first posts I put on this blog site. It’s been almost 6 years since I wrote this poem, and I’d like to share it again. Maybe I’m not alone in what I’m feeling. Dreams are the only way I can see my mom again.

Find Me In My Dreams

I think about you every day,
your face engraved in my mind,
but I have yet to see you in my dreams

and each night it’s what I hope to find.

I talk to you before I fall asleep,
to your picture I say “good night”.
I wish you’d visit me in my dreams,
it would be such a wonderful sight.

To see the beauty of your face,
to feel the warmth of your smile,
please come find me in my dreams,
stay for just a little while.

I wish we’d had more time together,
it’s really hard to believe you’re gone.
There’s so much I need to tell you,
I’m trying so hard to be strong.

But living life without you
is much harder than I thought it would be.
Please come find me in my dreams tonight,
Mom, please come visit me. 

I read this poem and I am taken back to the cold, sunny winter day when I wrote it. The feelings I express in this poem haven’t changed. I hope to see my mom again in my dreams very soon. I still miss you, Mom, and I will always love you.

    • Hi Matt. I apologize for my delayed response. I’m glad you liked my poem. I am also glad you still dream of your mom. Take care.

  2. Thanks Kathy..I couldn’t have expressed it any better. I lost my mum to breast cancer last November and I’ve been praying to meet my mum in my dreams but they are far between or simply cos I cant recall my dreams. I miss my mum so so so much

    • Hi. Sorry to the delay in replying. I am so sorry about the loss of your mom. I miss my mom too. I wish you the best. Take care.

  3. Well-spoken/written. Bless you.
