I got so used to quite often having these vivid dreams about Tom, and I strongly felt that he was still with me. After a few years, he appeared more scarce, and I started to feel a bit uneasy. I was afraid that I would not see him any more, and that made me sad. But the dreams continued for many years to come. Today, I seldom see him, but he sometimes shows up, as if nothing has happened. That’s my son all right!
About 3 1/2 years after he was gone, this dream came to me one night:
I am looking for Tom, and I see him lying on the grass sleeping. As I watch him, he wakes up, but he is so tired he does not see me. Before I am able to speak to him, he has mounted a bright horse which takes him away. I call out for him, and just as the horse is walking out of sight, Tom turns around and looks at me. Then he is gone. Soon after, I see him on horseback once again, now riding in the other direction. I notice that his hair is quite long and dark. I find it a bit strange, because when a little boy, his hair was almost white.
This thing about the horse, what is it trying to tell me? As far as I know, Tom has been on horseback just once in his life. He was then 5 years old, and he was riding a pony in Scotland. He did not like it very much either. I read that dreaming about a horse is all about love, strength and physical energy. I like that.
In this dream, Tom was obviously too preoccupied to pay much attention to me. That’s all right, Tom, I get it.
Tom told me that he liked this song by Lou Reed:
