The Obituary Dream

The Obituary Dream

When I was eight I dreamed of the bike I would get when I turned ten. When I was thirteen I dreamed of the girl I would kiss when I was fourteen. I recognized her when I met her a year after that dream. She kissed me, though, sometimes dreams are backwards.

When I was seventeen I dreamed about getting beaten up. I didn't mouth off when I met those guys, and they beat me up anyway. When I was twenty-one I dreamed of the woman I would marry and as soon as I met her I dreamed of our children.

Most of my dreams predicted their milestones in life. I came to rely upon my dreams to always be prepared for them. They knew their dad could see the future, somehow, and it made them behave themselves.

Good kids. I dreamed I would have a grandchild in a few more years. But I cannot see anything that happens, just hearing people telling me I have a granddaughter. Weird.

I had a dream last night that finally made me understand. I am very afraid, because nothing prepared me for this. Hell, I am only going-on-forty. I thought I had lot of time left. There was a lot I had left to do, and now I am panicked. The terror of my dreams has my mind in denial.

Dreams cannot see into the future. I cannot see the future, that's insane. I must be insane!

For I dreamed of my obituary, six days from now. It was just a dream, and I am not trembling in fear. I'm going to go mow the lawn, now.## TLDR Summary:

When I was twenty-one I dreamed of the woman I would marry and as soon as I met her I dreamed of our children. When I was eight I dreamed of the bike I would get when I turned ten. When I was thirteen I dreamed of the girl I would kiss when I was fourteen. They knew their dad could see the future, somehow, and it made them behave themselves. I dreamed I would have a grandchild in a few more years. Dreams cannot see into the future. But I cannot see anything that happens, just hearing people telling me I have a granddaughter.
