Michael Jackson's father has marked the fifth anniversary of the King of Pop's death by revealing his son visits him in his dreams.

Joe Jackson posted a tribute to the Thriller hitmaker on his website on Wednesday (25Jun14), revealing Michael is always on his mind - even when he's asleep.

His touching note reads, "Michael, not a day goes by when I don't think of you. I miss you. Everywhere I go, your music follows me. I hear it in the stores, in the car, on Tv. You are everywhere. You were a great son and I will always miss you."

And then Joe revealed that his son is alive in his dreams, adding, "Time and again in my sleep, my son visits me. When I was laying in bed sleeping, I dreamt he was in the same room with me, standing there and smiling. He started singing, his voice was echoing in my dreams and woke me up. I realized I was awake in a dream.

"He continued singing and his voice echoed out the door. In my dream, I woke up and walked to the door following the voice as it faded away. I woke up and realized I had been dreaming."
