Real Ghost Stories

White Rose


My mom works in a hospital as a nurse-midwife here in Manila, and because of this, I was used to seeing a hospital and everything in it-- I mean EVERYTHING. As I said in my previous story here, I have had my 'gift' ever since I can remember although I can only have the best of them by seeing them and never speaking nor hearing them.

One night, I was with my mom in the hospital because she was on her PM shift and I had no one at home (my dad was a seaman and I was the only child back then). My mom was working in the delivery room, so she let me stay in the labor room (the labor and delivery room of the hospital were separated) and have me study for my test the next day. I remember, I was with one patient and she was sleeping. I was reading from my Science textbook when I saw a man, wearing jeans and a shirt, walk in the labor room. He sat beside the bed of the patient, held her hand, but never spoke. I just watched him as he did whatever he was doing, but I was kind of wondering as well, why the patient wasn't waking up.Well, I never did bother myself, and I soon found myself reading again. After about 3 more minutes, I noticed the man standing in front of me. I was surprised at first but he smiled at me. I smiled back, then I returned with my book. After a few seconds, he was still in front of me. I looked up at him with wonderment and he smiled again, this time, he stretched out his hand and gave me a white rose. I held the rose, looked at it for a second, and when I looked up, he was gone. I shrugged the whole idea of him disappearing, closed my book and finally fell asleep.

I was woken by my mom the next morning and told me it was time to go home. When I fixed my things, I found the rose and remembered about the man the night before. I also saw the patient awake. I then asked her if she knew the man who went in last night. She said that there was no man last night. I told her everything the man did- how he held her hand, he looked at her and how he stayed beside her. The woman cried even before I finished my story. I felt sorry for her though I don't know why she cried. I then gave her the rose and told her she could stop crying. Upon seeing the rose, she hugged me tight and thanked me. As curious as I was, I asked her why she is thanking me.

The patient then smiled even with all the tears and said: "It was my husband you saw last night. He died of car accident the night I was about to tell him I was pregnant. He knows I love white roses and his smile."

only ghosts knows what they need to do before they say goodbye for the last time, that's why they would like to ask favor for someone who had a 3rd eye because they could help lives of others

sometimes God would gave them a chance to let someone see them before they will go to another place called heaven so that person will be the key or the solution to say farewell to their beloved ones.

Such a beautiful story. A husband comes back to care for his wife, who never got to tell him she was pregnant with there child.

And to point one more thing, a ghost can bother you when you least expected. Awake or asleep it doesn't matter, it finds a way to wake a personm up. I'm still puzzled of why he gave her the rose. I mean why a rose; a white one to say the least and not a red one? It's kind of hard to believe that something in spirit can give a person something physical. I heard lot of stories and I never heard that before. Usaully a ghost leave something behind and never give a person anything upfront.

Dying in bed or sleeping, doesn't matter. The point is that why did the man gave her the rose and not to his love instead? Not all my stories have demons and some of the stories are basically bring some sort of suspense. I just dislike stories thata re touchy, because that kind of story is the one that scares me the most.

bldfalcon, first of all, the woman wasn't dying, she was having or had just had, a baby... Maybe the man gave the rose to someone else so as not to wake or frighten his wife... Sometimes you need to think before you write... I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'...I think the reason that it's not your cup of tea is the absense of "demons"...

This is a great story, and this site needs more of them, if anyone has any?

I don't know it's too much drama going on. Not my cup of tea, I like stories that I can relate too. It doesn't make sense how the man came up to you, of all people and gave you a rose instead of his own wife. What's up with that! Correct me if I'm, but if a person is near death he or she can see her dead love ones. So, maybe is one of those ironic moments. Other wise, this story it's alright. I hate meaningful stories, but I found this one to be more touching just for one reason. My granfather is very old and someday I would love to see him in spirit. I could undertand if that man was your relative, but it wasn't.
