The sad dream

It's not often that Finley has dreams, then, he usually doesn't remember them.
Recently he has been remembering his dreams and talking about them.

At dinner last night we were talking about our dreams when Finley brought up the subject of a sad dream he had years ago. I knew about the dream, but over the years, whenever I asked him about it, all he would say was "it was so sad, I don't want to talk about it, because then you will become sad."

Well, last night he told us, with tears in his eyes, he was crying and sobbing and wiping his tears with his dinner napkin as he told us and it was the saddest thing I ever heard.

He told us that he dreamt that when he was a baby he lost us and was all alone.
