I fell asleep on the couch with my tabby Simon. I dreamt that Stephen hadn’t called or texted in two days. I was worried but thought perhaps he was busy visiting with his children. In my dream, I picked up my phone to send a quick text to say hello to Stephen. I awoke at that moment and half-awake, I reached for my phone to send the text to him. And then I remembered that Stephen is dead.
I want to go back to sleep.
