An Unforgettable Dream

There is this one dream I had in the year 2014. I was missing Papa a lot. Still miss him but at that time I just was not in a good headspace.

One night, I had a dream where I was in an aeroplane and the oxygen masks were deployed. In the seats around me were my Mom, Grandmother and guess who – Papa. I was so happy. The three of them were talking and laughing. I cannot put into words how happy I was.

Papa was in his banyan and blue checked short pants. He was wearing his specs and was laughing and I’l say it again, I was so happy being there. But it was a jumble of events. And all of a sudden I wasn’t in the plane anymore. I was in Granny’s house. And there I met my Dad’s Doberman – Jackie.

Jackie was there with my Dad before he married Mother. And in this dream, I was following this dog around. He had a growth below his right eye. The next scene, I was back home and I met Ginger, a beagle, my first dog who left us too soon.

It was all haphazard but I ended up back in the plane. Something kept telling me I had to leave, I felt like I was being pulled away. I was crying and saying out loud that I did not want to leave. I remember such pain knowing I was being taken away from the plane. And I woke up crying and mumbling that I didn’t want to leave.

But it was a dream I will never forget. I don’t know what it was but it felt real. And the reason that I feel this dream was something else was because of my Dad’s dog Jackie. I had no idea that he had a growth under his right eye.

When I asked Dad if this was true, he confirmed it. It was a weird dream, but I got to meet Papa, Ginger and Jackie who are not with us in the normal sense of the term.
