He Lives in My Dreams

His Life

I wake up sometimes after falling asleep because I see him in my dreams. He takes me places I have never been. He once took me to a place with a lot of trees and grass. He took me to the tree that he wanted to carve his initials in, along with his girlfriends. He said he could not finishing carving the initials into the tree because his knife broke. I asked his girlfriend about this and she verified it was true. How do I see him? What is our strong connection? We are cousins but in another life, I believe he was supposed to be my twin brother. I believe he was supposed to be my mother's son. 

He would be loved and alive. I have always been open and believed in spirits and ghosts, the afterlife? I do not know exactly what to call it. I asked him if he could move on and he said no. He said he doesn't see this light or tunnel that people talk about. He goes to see our grandparents at times and he meets people. He met a young, slender woman with light brown hair and delicate features. She was in the medical field. He tells me things about people. He takes me into peoples houses. Sometimes I tell him, I should not be there because I feel strange like I am snooping. 

My 17 year old cousin took his own life and the day it happened I was working and got a phone call. I also instantly had severe head pain. It was like I could feel it. I could feel what happened to him. It was almost as if I was there. 

I was at work but I knew that we had to get to him as soon as I left work. He kept telling me you won't see me anymore on Sunday. He was taken on Sunday and his parents decided to have his organs donated. 

It broke my heart, it was horrible seeing him in a hospital bed knowing he felt he had no one. It was the worst feeling in the world.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Kasei Bulloch: At the beginning I wasn't very into the story but I kept reading and was more hooked than I was with Battle of the Wills. All of a sudden I had devoured chapter after chapter then the book was over. I am dying for The Compact. Please help a girl out!

JanThompson: This book gives a beautiful description of a country which one rarely gets to see. The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves. I ...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

ryder: This is an excellent read. From beginning to end the author showed his creative and imaginative writing skills. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and sorrow: This book has it all. I strongly recommend this book, and I am already recommending it to my friends.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...
