I HAD BE WATCHING A HORROR MOVIE BEFORE GOING TO BED, I AWOKE WITH A JOLT AS SOMEONE WAS CHASING ME IN MY DREAM. I FELT SLIGHTLY HOT HEART BEATING AS YOU DO WHEN YOU HAVE A NIGHTMARE, MY HUSBAND WAS LAYING ASLEEP NEXT TO ME AND I FELT A LITTLE FRIGHTENED BECAUSE OF THIS DREAM SO TURNED OVER TO CUDDLE HUBBY WHO WAS SLEEPING ON HIS SIDE FACING THE DOOR. THE DOOR WAS AJAR. SUDDENLY I COULD HEAR BIRDS SINGING REALLY LOUDLY IT WAS LIKE IT WAS IN MY HEAD RATHER THAN EXTERNALLY AND I LIVE RIGHT ON A MAIN ROAD SO VERY UNLIKELY TO BE OUTSIDE AS VERY LOUD AND INCIDENTALLY WE HAVE DOUBLE GLAZING.
THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN A COLOURFUL SMALL BALL OF LIGHT IN MY BEDROOM I AM SHORT SIGHTED SO I COULDN'T EXACTLY SEE WHAT IT WAS BUT I THINK IT WAS EITHER A BIRD OR A BUTTERFLY IT WAS A ORANGEY LIGHT BUT WITH BLUE IN IT AS WELL. IT WAS EXTREMELY COLOURFUL ALMOST CARTOON LIKE COLOUR. THIS FLEW DOWN THE HALL WAY TOWARDS MY FATHERS ROOM. IN THE SHADOW OF THE HALL WAY I COULD THEN MAKE OUT AN OUTLINE OF WHAT LOOKED LIKE MY MUM CUDDLING SOMEBODY. THE ONLY WAY I CAN DESCRIBE THIS WAS SHE WAS LIKE A SHADOW AND THE MOVEMENT WAS IN THE FORM OF AN OLD HOME MOVIE STYLE FOOTAGE FROM A KIND OF PROJECTOR CAMERA MOVING BACK AND FORWARD KISSING A CUDDLYING THIS PERSON . I COULDN'T MAKE OUT WHO SHE WAS CUDDLYING. THEN IT WAS OVER IT PROB DIDNT LAST MORE THAN 5-10 MINUTES.
I LAY THERE IN AMAZEMENT FOR QUITE A WHILE WANTING TO WAKE MY HUSBAND BUT THOUGHT HE MIGHT THINK I WAS MAD AND THEN IT SUDDENLY DAWNED ON ME TO PUT MY GLASSES ON AND LOOK AT THE TIME IT WAS 04:30. I SUDDENLY REMEBERED THE NIGHT MY MUM PASSED AWAY. NOT LONG AFTER THE DOCTOR ANNOUNCED THE TIME OF DEATH AROUND 0400AM OFFICIALLY BRITISH SUMMERTIME WE MADE OUR WAY OUT OF THE HOSPITAL SHOCKED AND OBVIOUSLY DISTRAUGHT, I VIVIDLY REMEMBER COMMENTING TO MY HUSBAND ON THE BIRDS SINGING SO LOUDLY BEFORE WE GOT IN THE CAR TO MAKE OUR JOURNEY HOME. IT THEN HIT ME THAT PERHAPS THIS WAS HER WAY OF LETTING ME KNOW SHE IS OK I HAVE SEVERAL RELATIVES WHO HAVE PASSED AND JUST MAYBE THIS WAS HER WAY OF TELLING ME THEY WERE THERE TO MEET HER THAT IT WAS ALL OK NOW.
