It all started as an ordinary day. I had
just woken up and went to take a shower.
Then I walked into my bedroom to check my
e-mail. Mabel meowed most urgently.
"What wrong's Mabel?"
She turned and pointed with her paw. There
sat on my rose picture a Crow.
I lived part of my life in a magical world. Still, having
a talking Crow in my room made me pause.
I have a urgent message
for you. You must go to The Park today. There you will
find your answer.
The answer you have been seeking in your dreams.
The answer I have been looking for? There
was only answer that I had been seeking for almost
two years now. At that moment,I looked up to see The Crow and Mabel saying goodbye.
Farewell, Shell. We will meet again soon.
The window opened on it's own. I watched The Crow fly away until
she was a speck in the blue sky.
I had to get dressed. I noticed on my pillow a
beautiful red Rose and The Sun Card from the Jane Austen Tarot.
Looking at the picture, I understood some of the answer that
would be waiting for me in the park.
The sky is beginning to get cloudy from the approaching storm. I ignored
it as I walked to my beloved park.
Though cars raced by the highway, the path is quiet. I walked
with my heart racing fact and anticipation fluttering in my stomach.
I made it the park and walked among my favorite group of Trees.
I wasn't sure what I am looking for. I know it would appear. Then
I heard a whistle, there is The Crow again.It is right over there what you seek.
I went to one of the oldest of the Trees. There nestled in the ground,
a letter with a another Red rose and a piece of chocolate on it. As
I bent closer to it, I gasped. There is handwriting I hadn't seen in
almost two years. A letter to me from my Sean. He is the answer that I
I picked up the Rose. It smelled of love, hope and friendship
that never dies.
I sat on the green grass. I gently opened the letter from
Sean. My heart burst open in happiness.
Those two lines meant more to me than anything since his passing.
For the first time since Sean had gone, I felt a deep peace.
Of course, it is nearly Halloween. Now, the veils between our world
and the next grow thinner as the days get close to October 31st.
To be enchanted by a friend long gone is the best gift I can ever
