The Light

When I looked to my right,
I saw two people
Standing silently in the light

When I looked to my right,
I saw a couple
Watching me

When I looked to my right,
I saw my grandparents
Smiling back at me

I couldn’t go to the other side
There was an invisible wall in between us
But they seemed happy and at peace

I drifted back here out of the light
Opening my eyes,
Tears slowly rolled down my cheek.
