Real Ghost Stories



This is a short story not mine but my niece's.

My Dad passed away from cancer 17 years ago, Dad and my niece Clare were very close (Dad and Clare have a special bond as Clare was the youngest grandchild). When my Dad passed away Clare was 7 years of age. Clare wrote a poem about Dad, she drew a love heart and wrote inside, I won't say the whole poem as it long, but the last sentence said,

"Grandpa I hope you are somewhere"

Present day.

Clare was with her friend Rachel (Rachel can see, feel and hear spirits) Rachel said "oh my God Clare I think your Grandpa is here". My niece said ' I don't believe you" my Dad (remember he has died) said To Rachel 'you tell her this' He recited that poem word for word, and said ' TELL Clare that I am somewhere".

When my niece told me I knew in my heart is was my Dad letting us all know that he is at peace and that he is somewhere...

A few years on mum moved I could not throw that poem out, took it home and put it in my cupboard. When Clare and I were talking about her experience she told me that Dad also said 'its not thrown out but in a cupboard' I said to my niece' my god THE poem is here'.

Thanks for reading this. I really believe my Dad is still with us even though we can't see him...

love your story!
Its so hard to lose a parent (I know that ALL too well) so it is very comforting to know that they are watching over us in their spirit form. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful story.❤

Reading your story gave me chills. Not the scary kind, obviously, more like "Chicken Soup for the Soul." I admit that I'm somewhat skeptical about psychics, but your daughter's friend Rachel just blew my mind! Things like this are confirmation of our faith, and knowing that we will all one day be reunited with our loved ones who have passed. God bless you and your family.

That was a great story! It just goes to show, that not all contact from the other side is meant to be scary! Thanks for sharing! 😊

thanks for your nice comments, when my niece told me, I just knew it was dad. My niece has even seen not a medium but spiritually healer, and even then dad turned up very interesting thankyou again. Koala girl.

koala: This is a great story!...The love one feels for a grandchild is very hard to define...It's a whole other facet, one that can NOT be experienced until you're a grand parent...It's incredible... I absolutely LOVE this story! 😊

This is a very sweet story. I'm glad your niece was able to communicate with her grandpa again. It's such a hard thing to lose our loved ones, and so it makes these little things all the more special to know that they love us so much that not even death can stop them from continuing to care for us.
