Decision After Death

Lying in bed,
Weak and alone,
I suddenly heard
A great bell tone.

I looked above me
And there I see
A beautiful, bright light
And an angel singing happily.

"Reach up high,
Reach for the light,"
The angel sang to me
In a voice so bright.

I started to reach for the light,
Then the thought came to me....
What about my friends
And my family?

Then another angel
Popped by my side.
"Forget going to heaven;
Go run and hide."

I started to do
Just as he said.
Then I noticed,
This angel was dressed in black and red.

"I'm sorry," I told him,
"I mustn't do as you said.
For my body is weak,
I must stay in bed."

The white angel smiled
And sang again to me,
"Reach for the light.
Reach it; you'll see."

My body felt lifted,
Light as if on air.
Then the thought again hit me
Of my friends and family there.

"I cannot go anywhere.
Anywhere at all.
What if this makes
My friends' feelings fall...

And what about
My mom and my dad?
If I go with you,
They'll be very sad."

The white angel
Looked at me and sighed.
I sat there and sat there;
I cried and I cried.

I didn't want to leave
Mom and Daddy behind.
Whether or not to go,
I couldn't make up my mind.

The red and black angel,
He looked at me, too.
I cried some more.
There was nothing else I could do.

"Hush little child.
Please do not cry.
You will understand it
All by and by,"

A voice had come
From the light up above.
I could tell
That it was sent to me with great love.

"Please, don't make me go,"
I screamed and I cried.
This is when I realized
I had already died.

The angel looked at me
And then sang again,
"Come with me now.
Come with me, my friend."

Knowing this was the right thing to do,
I reached and took her hand.
I obeyed her each
And every command.

She smiled at me
And smiled so bright.
Then we started to go
Into the light.

The red and black angel
Just shook his head and sighed.
"If you had come with me,
If you had come with me," he cried.

"If I had come with you,"
I replied to him,
"I would be in a place
So dark and so grim,

But the place I am going,
I understand now,
That I will see my friends
Again somehow.

And guess who else.
My family, too!
This would not be
If I went with you."

And with this last comment,
I smiled and took hold
Of the angel who'd lead me
To the bright streets of gold.

And into the bright light,
Together we flew,
And this is when I realized,
This was the best thing to do,

And leaving the devil
At the side of my bed,
I flew up to Heaven.
I'd rather be there instead.
