Zero to Hero – Day 6: Reading the Dream

The assignment for Day 6 is to write to our Dream Reader and include a new element in our post that we haven’t used before.

i have been thinking about this all day, and come to the conclusion that this blog is really all about things that I would love to tell my husband if he were still alive.  He is my Dream Reader.  So, even though I do not really believe it, a tiny part of my heart hopes that he is out there somewhere, his electrical soul floating around waiting for a way to connect with me, and maybe this is it.

So pay attention Andrew, this is all for you, 5 is the number, any 5, anywhere, I’ll know it’s you.

I wanted to embed a small video I had, but it has been too hard to try and convert it from an old DVD I had made, and find the small couple of seconds I wanted to pull out of it.  So, the thought was there, but the ability to do it tonight was not.  Perhaps when I have more time to crawl through all of the information on how to do that I will.

I think I can add our wedding song here though, so I’ll give that a shot


I have also chosen to share the poem I wrote for my husbands funeral service.  I know that I have used verse before (but I’ve put it in quotes today), but it deems to fit with my mood, and is certainly appropriate for my Dream Reader.

It is done
you are gone
I set your free, softly on the breeze
Your body to the fire
Your spirit to the sky, the earth, the sea

Our circle may be finished
In this life, this here and now
But there will be a new beginning
Sometime, somewhere, somehow

The laughter, love and memories
The children that we made
Will live in our soul forever
For these there cannot be a grave

So light the path for me
Through this time we are apart
My soul is bound to yours
We will never lose our heart

I will love you many times again
In other worlds to come
Where our love and life together
Once more we will begin

      Thank you for your kind words, and taking the time to comment.

        It’s true, you were very candid in the post and that takes a lot of bravery. I posted the link to my blog on FB yesterday and I felt so exposed, knowing that I had sent a link for people to see my inner thoughts and opinions, strengths and weaknesses. So honestly, thank you xx

          Sometimes it is hard to find the balance between wanting to say things and not wanting others to hear them, but really wanting them to hear them without knowing it was us saying it. If that makes any sense.

            Yes!!! I think we all feel like that at some point! Its so hard to express yourself sometimes.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I hadn’t been around your blog enough yet to discover this about you. Your poem brought tears to my eyes. It’s beautiful and so has so much heart and soul. For what it’s worth, and I realize that isn’t much, I personally believe your love is connecting to you. Hugs…


    • Claudette 21/04/2014 / 8:48 pm

      Thank you. i dthink I have probably only mentioned that my husband was dead once before on my blog, and just in passing. I know he is somewhere 🙂

    This is very beautiful. Keep writing, you have lots to say. And I believe we will all meet our loved ones again, somewhere, sometime and somehow

    This is such a beautiful blog and whilst you have written about something sad, it also brings joy to me knowing from what you have written that you will meet up with your husband again one day. I truly believe that someone (probably my Grandmother) is up there watching over me, keeping me safe and guiding me along my path of life. So, I believe that your husband will see the blog you wrote for him. I’m now a follower of you and your blog and I look forward to reading more from you. Thank you for sharing with us.

      Thank you for your follow, and your kind words. i will be checking out your blog tonight, but off to work now. have a lovely day in your part of the world.

    Well done Claudette — I recognize your ideal reader though I hadn’t realized quite for whom I was writing! I’m wet eyed and remembering those, now gone, I used to phone to tell my news and funny stories. You made me understand how much I miss them.


    • Claudette 22/04/2014 / 8:20 am

      Thank you. Sometimes in the midst of living it is hard to remember to say the things we feel, what they value is of saying them out loud, when we feel them all the time. Have a lovely day.

    Me, too, I believe we will be with our loved ones in heaven. I cried when I read your poem, its so emotional and lovely. Greetings from Egypt!


    • Claudette 22/04/2014 / 8:21 am

      Sorry I made you cry, but is was kind of in a good way, right? Greetings from Tasmania.

          well it is Autumn here, so cool is what it is 🙂

    I may not know how it feels because I have never been there, but the song and even the poem is the sweetest farewell and hello you have told your husband.


  8. Kat 22/04/2014 / 1:59 am

    Beautiful words. Your writing comes from your heart and it shows.


    • Claudette 22/04/2014 / 8:06 am

      Thank you. sometimes the subject matter helps. 🙂


      • Kat 22/04/2014 / 8:18 am

        I think it makes all the difference.

    Hi Claudette, the promises of your wedding song and the funeral poem, both so full of love, so poignant, and to me they capture what it’s all about, it being everything: life, love. Thank-you for sharing this.


    • ceenoa 22/04/2014 / 7:56 pm

      Thank you Jill, it is, indeed, everything.

    Thank you for sharing this. It is so nice to find a connection with someone who has experiences similar to yours.


    • Claudette 04/05/2014 / 2:35 pm

      Thank you for commenting. Sometimes there just comes a time that things slip out of our heads and into the world.


Happiness is kind words from a friend .....
