Losing my aunt

Written by: Carmen Erickson

I fall into the darkness.
The flames of hell wrap around 
me.
It's hard to breath.
The smoke suffocates me.
Then I see a hand from above. 
I reach for the hand. 
I see the light again.  
My wings have spread out. 
I'm flying and soaring through 
the skies. 
I'm in heaven and I'm happy. 
I see her.  
It's not your time she says. 
I frown, but he hugs me and 
says,
It'll be alright. 
So I go back. 
I go back to a life wondering. 
Will it ever be alright.
