To dream of seeing or being a widow represents feelings about a permanent loss or change. You are spending a lot of time noticing that something you grew accustom to is now gone. You may also have a sense of preservation or appreciation for what you still have left. Loneliness, neglect, or sadness. You may be feeling isolated or abandoned.
A widow may also reflect a heightened sensitivity about needing to respect someone who has suffered a permanent loss of some kind. Feeling a need to respect a loser in a competition. Sensitivity about what other people think about you having lost something special or powerful about yourself.
Negatively, a widow in a dream may be a sign that you have grown too accustom to living with a loss.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing a widow. In waking life he was sensitive about seeing someone on a reality tv show the previous day being made fun of after they got kicked off the show and lost the competition.
