I was tossing and turning in bed for hours that night, I couldn’t sleep. As soon as I would start to doze off I would wake up wide awake. I moved from the bed to my couch in an effort to try and help myself fall asleep. As I started to doze off on the couch, I felt a feeling I have not felt in so long – Anthony’s stubble across my face. I knew it was him immediately, I felt a warmth across my whole body and I could literally feel his presence on top of me. In our physical life together Anthony and I were always close to one another, cuddling or snuggling. I felt the weight on him holding me like I had so many times before. I started crying and asked him to please not leave me. I could not see him but he grabbed my hand and used it to wipe my tears. I did ask him to please show himself to me, I believe that he tried but maybe he does not have that ability yet or I am not able to see him yet. All I saw was what appeared to be a white aura where I have a picture of him on my wall. I continued to beg him not to leave me and I felt a calm come over me, a calm that I only ever felt with him. A feeling that I was sure I would never feel again and asked him to please stay with me at least until I fell asleep. He did, I remember drifting off, and at that point I felt I had no control.
As much as I wanted to stay awake I couldn’t. When I woke up I remembered every detail of the experience and it only made me more sure that our love was so great it can transcend time, space, and even worlds.
