Per accidens

"At first laying down, as a fact fundamental,
That nothing with God can be accidental."
--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in Christus-The Golden Legend (Part IV)

Even now

How strange! You were just here with me;
or so it seemed, though that can't be.
It was a dream, so real that I can understand
how I still can feel your hand
even now.
