Near Death Experience

         Near Death Experience

Mother is gone, all is lost
Can I wake up from this dream?
What of the payment and the cost
Everything is not what it seem.

In her community, three times, "Mother of the Year"
Please bring her back
No one seem to hear
As time stands still off the beaten track.

Lord, I am sad and ready to take her place.
Wishful thinking, I do declare
One more time, let me see her face
At this time, I have no fear

I can get no peace, nor rest
Hope and pray to see the sun rays.
And lying here, a terrible pain within  my chest
My soul is gone, my body stays.

Look down, suspended from the sealing.
And men in black, surround me
As I wait for a healing
Waiting for my spirit to be free.

My body looks so tired, I am dead
Thirty seconds too long, I must return
With determination, my soul is back within my head.
Alive again, as my body turn.

William Morrissey 3/08/89
