Although at first sight it indicates the contrary, dreaming of a coffin is a good omen because it represents the end of a cycle and the beginning of another, as well as liberation from an oppressive situation. Looking at a coffin holding a person that you do not know or cannot see indicates you are getting rid of useless items. If you know the person, this episode may be revealing your concern for their health. The interpretation of this dream varies depending on the character that is occupying it. So, if it is your partner it predicts eternal fidelity; an infant announces pain without hope; your own mother, enemies willing to forgive offenses.
