A simple visit

Trying to get myself together, I book my dentist appointment. In the waiting room I sit. Finally, they call me, I sit on the all familiar dentist chair. Looking up, the light shines on my eyes, Giving my headache advancement, I close my eyes. Suddenly they speak of cavities. “Would you like to get fillings today?” they ask. Sure, I thought aloud. They numb my mouth, Nothing I felt, they asked me one more question. “Would you like the gas to feel more comfortable?” “Yes please”, I replied. Next thing you know I am gazing off, It leads to my mind wondering, I feel strange. Images of all my emotions pop up, They start to seem more real. I am off into a deep sleep, Me sitting in a chair carrying my son, He opened his longing eyes, My heart felt the joy of this dream. I was rocking him so peacefully, My little angel came to me in a deep sleep. I wake from the drilling of my teeth feeling at peace, The dentist told me of how peaceful I seemed, Moreover, of how tired I must have been that I fallen asleep. No idea they had of how restless I was, Nor that I am a grieving mother who had just lost a piece of her heart. I did not expect to had left the dentist feeling happy, I had a vision a created memory that put me at peace. Crazy you might think but I look forward to my next dentist appointment. ~My son Bael forever in my heart and if I’m lucky in my dreams he will visit me~

One of your best poems, N. J. Only comments: Line 17, did you mean to use the word, wondering or wandering? Line 28, change, I fallen asleep to I'd fallen asleep. Great write. P.S. My condolences for your loss....

Hi Royal, I enjoyed reading, nothing crazy about it. I speak with my little angels often, as long as I live, they live in my heart. I can always visit with them just by closing my eyes as look toward the sky. It gives me the peace and comfort you speak of in your write. peace, light and love

Wow!! What a poem. Now my teeth are hurting a bit. It must be a fear of dentist thing. Perhaps the next time I will ask for gas also. Take care, Jancarl

by the way, I adore laughing gas and the restful feeling, with all my stress and insomnia lately, I wish I could afford a dentist visit myself. haha

My Dear Royal,YOU can expect many more of these short Satisfing Visit. Each one more healing then the last. When YOU wake up in the morning, Singing and Dancing with "Bael" and pay no attention to those that do not know the Reality YOU walked out of that Dream with. As YOU write YOUR emotions with the LOVE in YOUR Heart YOU Abide in Tranquility. YOU are and Will be a Laureatus POETESS. Thank-YOU for YOUR Touching and Gracious Comment. It brought tears to my eyes. I LOVE YOU Thru Eternity...Harry
