My boyfriend has died dream
THE DREAM My boyfriend of 4 years has died, and I am very upset about it, but I don't cry until I'm at his house looking through his closet. I find a shoe box filled with colored paper hearts and cards I have given him over the years. They are falling out of the box as I'm lifting it and I see the colors red and purple. (which explains a truth about myself- I can be into my thoughts but won't react to what's going on until I have a reason that provokes me, or an action such as a hug from someone that will force me into my feelings). I see myself on his brown couch, crying to someone while trying to explain that a death of a loved one is very different from a break up. There aren't any decisions made when death happens. I feel hopeless and frightened. I see his face in my mind; he is smiling, and he is wearing the same blue sweatshirt he was wearing last night. (Our group of friends met up for dinner and drinks. I remember enjoying his smile as he sat across from me at dinner and making a mental memory of it). I want to hug him and make all the bad memories go away, although I still don't know how he died. I see myself emailing his ex girlfriend from my blackberry; I write "Please call me." and give her my number. And I know I'm doing it because she loves him. (I know that I was too trusting with her in the past, which caused problems between us, but in this part of my dream I acknowledge that I have to put my personal feelings aside for now). Then I wake up crying.

She is setting aside petty problems and realising just how valuable he is and important he is to her. So the dreams meaning is easy to decipher. It simply captures the following feelings - "You can never truly tell how important someone is until they die. Then you realise how much you love them!".
