Rosie-

 I'm at my own funeral. Strange though, I have no memory of how I died. I'm looking at all who showed up besides family, that's a given, I guess if you're curious enough. There's my boyfriend Trace, and my two besties in the world Liz and Emily, and ugh Stephanie Zigler, my most hated enemy. She's been after Trace for awhile. Why is she here now?. My poor mom, dad and baby brother. How I wished I could hug them to me.

With the eulogy being over, and my pink casket getting lowered into the ground I feel I have to turn away, so I decide to go for a walk. Across the grounds, I spot a tree with a swing dangling from it, gently swaying in the afternoon October breeze. I walk over and see that the swing was added as a type of memorial for a little girl about 10 years old who was buried there. I read her stone marker and learn she had died of Leukemia.

I feel sad for her but wonder if it would be disrespectful if I sat on the swing. I  decide against it. Leaning down, I pick a baby dandelion from a patch of them not too far away, and place it on little Jessica's plot. I hear some commotion from where my funeral is, and look up in time to see that my mom overcome with grief while walking back to the limo, has fainted and everyone's doing what they can to help her. I stand up again, and watch sadly from where I am. I can't watch this anymore. I turn and flee into the woods.

I've wandered too deep into the woods, I don't know where I am now. There's fog everywhere now, as I walk up to a wrought iron gate. Beyond it, it looks like an old cemetary long forgotten. I walk in and see a bunch of statues everywhere. There's one statue of an angel with a bench next to it. This time I go and sit. I end up curling up on the bench and falling asleep on it.
****
I don't know how long I've been there when I see a brilliant light come from the sky and its blinding me, even with my eyes closed. I sit up and try to block the light from my eyes, when I see a figure approach me from the light. It's calling my name.

"Come, my child. It's time".

I do as I'm told, and walk into the light.
