Nightmares

My late brother, Chuu visited me on his birthday.

Yesterday was his birthday. It wasn't just like every other day for me because I was thinking about him throughout the day.

So last night in my dream I was just home chilling and he walked in through the door.

"Yayyy! Chuu"(as we fondly called him) I screamed... What a surprise!!...

It's been a long time since the last time I saw him... He lived far.... He handed me a bag and told me he brought some things for me... One of the items was a PlayStation video game...

So, as I was going through the other items I was trying to imagine where he was coming from with all that gift. After thinking for a while, it suddenly dawned on me that he was actually dead and that wasn't a real person.

I quickly remembered how before he took his last breath, he told us he was going on a voyage.

So, I walked towards him and asked him "how was the voyage? Are you back now?" I thought he would come to the realization that I'm now aware that he isn't real. He just kept staring at me. I hugged him again so tightly and kept crying and telling him how much I missed him.

Then I woke up with eyes full of tears... It felt as if there was someone lying beside me but when I turned to check I saw no one.
