Together - Poem by Louie Thompson

My head is pounding
and I hear a police car.
I don't know where I am
and I don't know where you are.

My vision is blurred
and I feel like something doesn't belong.
The fact that I can't see you
scares me like something is wrong.

The pain is slowly
leaving my body.
And my thoughts are more focused
but I still can't see anybody.

I search for you
but I find only a bright light.
It's too hard to stand
but I still try to fight.

I need to find you
I don't want to be alone.
You are the best person
that I have ever known.

Then I feel you
reach and grab my hand.
And you pull me up next to you
and slowly help me stand.

You whisper in my ear
that we are in a better place.
And that we will always be together now
in the light of God's grace.

    Well this poem is a loving description of what death can do, but try, like me, not to wish it too often. We are dead a long time, so I am told! I bow down and go when I deserve,9 from Tai (Report) Reply
