When My Light Turns Green



It seemed like morning.  The sun was bright.  I stretched.  I felt so good, and it's been a long time since I have felt that way.  The air was so fresh, and I took a deep breath.  It wasn't fall.  The leaves were green,  my body was comfortable.

Something seemed out of place as I looked around.  My high school sweetheart was there. My Dad.  Mother? 

My mind wandered, as Mother reached out to me.

"Where am I?"

"You are with us now!"

I looked at all those people in front of me.  All those I have known in the past.

"May we help you?"  One Asked.

"Where am I"

"Kelley, You have taken the next step."

I looked around, "Where's Susan?"

"She's not here yet!"

I realized, I had passed.  My time had come as with all of us.

I sat on a bench, saddened.  One that I have known for so many years, reached out to me.

Smiling, "All that is past, is now.  Take the path that you enjoyed then and follow it now."

"The path to Susan is what I want!"

"That may take many years, but be assured you will meet her again."

Life will continue within you.  You hope you might reconnect with those, past and present.


Wouldn't it be nice if it was that easy


I chose the correct path.  I'll see you again!
