The overall meaning of seeing someone die in your dreams could be interpreted as feeling like you are losing control of life. What a dream really means is seldom that someone is going to die.
A Peaceful Death
If you are dreaming of a certain unknown dying, or simply dying like that, it may mean you are about to finish something, and are at the doorstep of a new start. If there is something negative going on in your life that you are not quite ready to let go, then dreaming of dying might symbolise your wish to get out of everything, not through dying, but simply getting out.
If there is a person who is terminally ill in your life, or has died, it is no wonder that death is in the back of your head, and more likely in your dreams. Such dreams of dying people are not usually indicative of a wish you have for the death of another person. Of course, seeing such a dream does not necessarily mean that you want the death of anyone you know.
Meaningful Dreams About Dead People
If death really feels real, it could mean you are trying to impress the thing dying on a person you love. If you are stressed (in real life) over the person dying during sleep – that can be an indication of why you are having these dreams. Death, no matter how frightening in real life, can also put stress on you in the dreams.
You might see the deceased come back to life, or the living die, in the dreams as you work through the emotions of having suffered great loss. If you see a dream where a dead person is alive, this suggests change in your life. If you are dreaming about someone who died long ago, then it suggests a situation or a relationship currently going on in your life is similar to that deceased persons qualities.

Although a little disturbing, dreaming about death is a way for your mind to wake you up, asking you to review your life, accept, and make necessary changes that will allow you to live your dream fully.
