Here When I'm Needed


I've been reading stories on this site for a few months and finally decided to share my story. It's not scary but more comforting, well, for me anyways. It is still hard to talk about it.

It happened in the summer of 2008. I had just turned 21 and my boyfriend at that time just turned 22. Our birthdays were 2 days apart. We were together for 3.5 years when he passed away in a single car accident. He passed away on the spot. We used to talk about what would happen if one of us died, and he joked that he would haunt me forever. He kept his words but not about the forever part.

He passed away on a Wednesday, and on Friday night I took his pillow up with me to sleep in his sister's room (we lived together). Before I went to bed I told him (in my head) that I will be in his sister's room in case he couldn't find me. The next thing that happened was the realest experience with the paranormal I have ever had. Sure enough, as I laid down, I felt...different. That's the only way I can describe it. I wasn't cold or anything, though. Then I saw him at my feet on the floor (I was sleeping on the floor that night) with a smile, not scary one, but a comforting one. I told him I don't care if this is a dream or real, I'm just glad that he was there. He came up to me, placed his hand on my shoulder and gently pushed me down and I slept until morning.

As time went on, he would come into my dreams and talk to me. I would let him know what was going on in my life and when I had a new boyfriend. I told him in my dream and he said that he knew with a smile. I am now 25 and married for a year. He has been with me every single day, I know it. Every time I feel like everything is too much, I ask if I can "see" him in my dreams and not once did he not come to me.

Until recently, I'm at a happier place in my life. I prayed to him one day to let him know that I am being taken care of now, and that he can go on to wherever he had to go. I knew it was selfish to keep him for a bit but I needed him then so much. I lost him too suddenly and wasn't ready to let him go.

Last month, I felt the need to "see" him again, and it had been a long time since I have. However, he didn't come, and I don't think he will any more. But that's okay because I know he's somewhere better now and looking down on me.

P.S. There's more to him. I will save it for the next story.

Beautiful story. I like to think that they always stay with us, until they know that we will be ok without them. I'm glad you let him know that you were ok, and he could move on.:)
