Sometimes I dream that Mom is still alive. I wanted her to get better but she didn't survive. When I learned that she was going to die, it made me mad. Some of my dreams about Mom are good but some are bad. In some of my dreams, Mom and I have verbal fights. When she was alive, we were very close, we were tight. When she died, the world ended or at least that was how it seemed. I no longer have Mom in real life but I still have her in my dreams.
