Early Morning Rain

It's raining here this morning. It's suppose to turn heavy this afternoon, with the potential for flash floods. Oddly, I'm already flooded with memories this morning. Last night I was dreaming of a lot of my friends that are no longer here. We were having such a great time. I remember how happy and fulfilled I felt before waking up to the cold reality that it was only a dream and they are still dead. It was interesting, cause it wasn't memories of any particular place or event. It was totally fictional, but the faces and personalities were as I remember them. Lots of laughing and silliness, just all of us hanging out together again. It felt really good. I haven't felt that way in years. I hated to wake up and spoil it. As the morning has worn out, and the rain continues to fall, the crispness of the images are slowly fading. The warm feeling too. Reality sets in and my mind now turns to homework, and studying for a test on Monday. I know my friends are always with me even if we can no longer hang out or chat like once before. I take comfort in that.

My heart goes out to you. Just remember them as they were; I try me best on that. When I have dreams about them and wake up. <y mind tells me that it was them calling and leaving a message for me.
Hope you have a better day.

Don't you hate it when you awake from a good dream? You entertain yourself with the memory when you awake but like you said the details fade quickly as the day wears on.
Hang in there Dave.

Your freinds then were lucky to have known you... they will live forever through your dreams.
You still have friends who are always with you in spirit. Here, for instance! Nice writing, Dave.

important dreams will come back again and again, so not to be worrying if you miss out on some of them.
