Returning Home

by Lynn Miclea

I glide into the room

Frosty coolness permeating the air

I circle around the chair

Trailing wispy, ghostly fingers

Along the seat and the back

Where I had taken my last breath

My body choking and gasping at the end

It had been a tough life

Remembering the heart attack

That finally set me free

Releasing me from my sick, earthly body

Floating weightless in misty light

A deep sense of peace

Greeted by my wife’s open arms

Warmth and love radiating from her

She had been waiting for me

Now one last good-bye to the chair

And I return to vast fields of flowers and euphoria

In a place of indescribable joy

And my wife’s warm embrace

Brilliant light

Endless love

Infinite peace

I am healed

I am whole

I am finally home
