Near Death Experience
I visited a special place, without awakening from the night.
Those who had been lost, were now brought into the light.
The darkness I had known, was now forever gone.
Everyone was happy and smiling, I truly felt like I belonged.
I saw many familiar faces, there was nothing but love in the air.
I remember being happy, so glad to be there.
I saw my Mom and Dad, and my brother Kenny to.
Every face that I saw, looked so young and new.
As I looked around this place, I all at once felt a little sad.
I could still see the faces I was leaving, I saw their tears and I felt bad.
Then I heard a voice, from very close by.
I was told I couldn't stay, I was running out of time.
I was told not to talk about , all of the things that I saw.
So much inspiring beauty, that had just left me in awe.
But I could choose but one, to share with what was said.
To mention our future, and what truly lies ahead.
