Happy sweet dream



Saturday 19th December

I was beginning to get worried that I wouldn’t see you today.
Dad drove past about eight thirty this morning.
I tried three times this afternoon.
Each time the gates were padlocked.
What on earth was going on?

I made phone calls, sent emails, complaint forms filled out.

The cemetery seemed impenetrable.

The last Saturday before Christmas, surely there would be many people wishing to visit loved ones, placing Christmas wreaths and the like.

But the last time we tried, when it was almost dusk, miraculously someone had come along and swung the gates open wide.

Thank goodness.

I don’t think I could go a day without visiting you, or having our little chat together.

I brought you some sleigh bells, that your Auntie had found, and another little horse.

I miss you sweetie pie, I really do.
It’s just not the same at all.

But, I was so pleased, and relieved that we finally were able to see you.

So, Goodnight my Angel.
Have a happy, sweet dream.

Love you so much.



Almost dark, night night my darling xxx

  1. Beautiful! I’m so happy for you that you got to have your visit that you were longing for. It must have been so difficult not knowing if you were going to be able to visit that day. I know visiting a cemetery to honor and feel a connection with ones loved and lost is very healing for many people. It’s so great that it all worked out for you. ❤ ~Hugs & love~ ❤

    • Thank you.
      We were just so relieved to finally find the gates unlocked.
      We haven’t missed a day (apart from a few days away on holiday ~ an even then, my sister visited my son’s grave for us).
