Last night there was a dream,
Seeming as real as can be.
It lasted but a brief moment,
Almost as if it fell on me.
This dream was somewhat of a vision,
A glimpse of a future life.
Life with no fears, no agony or pain.
Could such a life be in sight?
The opening scene caught me by surprise,
It combined present and past.
My father was driving my car Pearl,
In the back seat I lay back for a rest.
His curious hands fiddled with knobs and buttons,
I watched in silent peace.
I finally inquired his intentions,
But ever determined he would not answer me.
Suddenly the wind hit my face,
Dad exclaimed “Three, Two, One!”
Startled, I watched the roof retract,
He had found the magic button.
The roof peeled back to reveal,
A sky shimmering so bright.
We cruised onward toward the sun,
Ethereal music guided us to the light.
Soon after I noticed large floating balloons
Some were high in the sky.
But some had ropes hanging down,
So I grabbed one as we drove by!
A gust of wind pushed the balloon
Just as I grabbed tightly.
I hung on and the balloon traveled higher
The car far behind, the blue sky ahead – where would it take me?
The music softens and the wind dies down,
The balloon approaches the ground.
The grass was made of velvet,
And as I landed I realized I wasn’t alone.
I hear the sounds of angels and familiar little voices,
I turn over on my back and oh what I sight:
Two small girls land gently on my chest,
They are squealing with delight!
I grabbed them with my whole heart,
Vowing to never let go.
Just then I awoke,
Full of fresh tears – my pillow case is soaked.
