My Conversation With Lenette

Last night, while fully awake, Lenette visited me, and we had a long talk. To begin with, I never saw her, yet I heard her without actually hearing her voice. How can this be?

We spoke for a long time, and what follows is as strange to me as it will be to you. I must add that I was fully awake during our conversation. 

I asked how she was doing and where she is now. She told me she is happy and with her friends and family and that the place she lives in is beautiful and all about love. There is no anger, bitterness, bigotry. Nothing like the world we live in. 

Lenette also made it clear that she wants me to be okay and happy. That I should not cry and feel sad for her. She wants me to accept that she lives in a state of love and caring and is surrounded by happiness.

This conversation with her left me feeling the best I have felt since her passing. I felt love, joy, and her presence.

I share this, knowing that hearing Lenette without hearing or seeing her is crazy. How do I even write this? I don’t know, but it was and is my experience.  And I feel the best I have felt about her in a long time.


Lenette visited me last night, and we talked.

It was so easy and natural as if in a garden we walked.

But strange as it is I did not see her or hear her voice.

Yet, I heard her speaking to me, so I made a choice.

She was talking to me but I did not hear her speak or see her.

How is this possible to be?

Still, I accepted this as a gift to me.

So, I asked many questions, and answers I got.

I heard answers, but her voice, strange as it seems, was not. How can this be? Maybe tonight I’ll see.
