I look out my window
and see a man outside
I open the door and there he stands
my guardian angel with heavenly white wings
I ask, ‘so, where have you been all my life’?
‘I have always been close by…
but, now I have come to show you something really incredible…’
I wonder what it is…
‘come with me’, he says
we lift off my front porch and fly through the air above this large lonely city
flying around up in the clouds a while looking down at the skyscraper lights
and all the bumper to bumper traffic on the freeway…
and, I ask him ‘how long this will take’?
he replies ‘an eternity…’
then, I get it…
and reply ‘oh, no, bummer, I feel like you tricked me…’
he says, ‘yes my son, in a way, you are right. My sincere apologies to you my brother, but
I know that after you see where you are going, you will soon forgive me…’
and then, we arrive and it is all revealed to me
and I wonder if I am dead, yet have never felt more alive.
