Going Towards the LiGhT!

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

I held unto her, and
she held my hand tight,
she said "please don't go,
I won't feel right!"

"Don't worry!" I said,
"I won't leave your side,
I will stay with you, now,
and later , tonight!"

We sat in the darkness
with the lights streaming by,
the curtains were closed,
and by now, it was night.

SHe was sitting up in her
bed, which was much
like a gurney, she was
ready to leave, prepared
for her "journey".

""What do you think that ,
it'll be like? Will it be dark?
or will there be light?"
SHe pondered a moment,
and looked over at me,
to which I responded,
quite genuinely.

"I don't know, I have never
been even there,
but when You see
it, you'll know the bright

You will walk towards the
tunnel, take the hands of
ones you know,
You will walk forward to
those and then you will go!"

"Hold my hand, cuz' I don't
want to leave, hold it tighter!"
she said, as she wheezed.

"Hey, take it easy, I'll help you
up , here, you want to
watch t.v., or you want to
walk here?"

I thought that she might want to
take a small walk, just a little
break from the bed ,
;she did not......

"No, I am sooo tired,
I want to lie back,
and she lay back on her
pillows, eyed me,
and kept track.....

the clock was ticking, the
cars zoomed outside,
the nurses were talking,
and I sat beside, when

...suddenly she sat up, and
sat up did she, "I see it!" she
exclaimed "Oh, it's just so pretty!"

"Hey, I see"them", there's my family!
They are waving at me, they want
me to follow, " she said happily.

I sat there, bewildered, but, trying to
not be sad, my friend's journey,
was ready to be had.

I blinked back
my tears, and held in my breath,
as my beloved friend,
walked towards "them"
embracing her death.

"Goodbye, I'll miss you, I love
you forever.!!!!"....
I said to her, as she slipped passed
in her endeavor......

to reach the white light, and
all that it gave,
she'd be alright, "she had it

I sat there, in silence, my tears
dropped like rain,
even though she'd left me,
I knew , I'd see her, ....

Author's Notes: By ladykelshan
Written Saturday July 29th, 2006

I wanted to write a poem like this for a long time...and it almost seemed to write itself in some ways....I wrote it also for people that I have personally known and or know, that know others' of having similar experiences..with a loved one or close friends.

I also write this, in thinking of those people that have had serious illnesses and that have "moved on"...whereever you are, ....I am thinking about you!
This poem was also inspired by an article in a magazine .
