State of constant confusion!
I'm sure that Jan and Gen remember the story behind this poem, but for those who don't, here it is
Chris was my best friend. We grew up together. He was killed in a car accident in which I was the driver. It took me almost eight years to finally be able to put these words to paper, and then only after visiting his grave for the first time since his funeral. As I was kneeling there crying, and asking his foregiveness, I felt this incredible feeling of absolute peace come over me. I knew at that moment that Chris was there with me. (I know this may sound strange, but it DID happen)
I knew he was sending me a message, He had foregiven me. He had all along, I think.
Thank you all for your heartfelt replies,
I really appreciate them.
All my love,
I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep
