(In the dark of night there came a spark. With eyes looking upward, the light quickened, the darkness swiftly banished...)
Ronnie: Is that you, Lord?
The Lord: Yes, it is, I AM.
Ronnie: But why are you here?
The Lord: You know why I'm here...
Ronnie: Not yet, Lord! My family needs me! What about my wife? My sons? My daughter! Lord, no, what about my daughter?!
The Lord: They'll be fine. They understand. They're a lot stronger than you even think.
Ronnie: But why now, Lord?
The Lord: Because it is so.
Ronnie: Waitwaitwait. Let's make a deal! Tell my wife to take me home; that is where I wish to go.
The Lord: It is done.
(The light grew more intense, brighter and brighter until he was finally home. The light was beautiful. Eyes now fixed, he saw a rainbow.)
Darlene (Wife): (She whispered) We love you. We'll miss you. But it's okay. Go on, Bay...
(That light. It slowly died in his eyes. He did as bidden, preparing to leave.)
The Lord: It is time.
Ronnie: I am Yours.
(And so they left, taking the light with them. The world was dark once again...but just at the edge, there was a speck. It was called Love.)
