Alone, In The Middle Of The Ocean..
With Nothing, But A Whispering Voice, And A Man In The Distance
 
I am sitting on a rock in the middle of the ocean
listening to nothing but the soothing sounds, of waves crashing into each other
The wind is blowing through my hair
There is no one around me 
I am all alone, all by myself
 
I close my eyes, and listen to the sounds of the waves crash into each other
I take a deep breathe, and inhale, the smell of the ocean breeze 
I now hear the sounds, of birds flying over my head
I open my eyes and watch the birds fly over me
I close my eyes again and hear a voice, softly whispering in my ear
 
I open my eyes and don't see anything or anyone around me 
Is the voice real? Am I dreaming?
I ignore the whisper and shut my eyes
The voice whispers to me again
This time, I try to listen to what the voice is telling me
The voice sounds familiar
I listen again and the voice calls my name
Ashley......Ashley......
I try to focus on the whispering voice
But, the voice stops 
 
I open my eyes, and in the distance, I see a man
I stare, and wonder, if what I am seeing is real
The man takes a step closer to me
 
I stand up on the rock, continuing to stare at the man, in the distance
I take a chance and step down onto the water
The water holds me and does not let me sink
I look down and see fish swimming underneath me
I slowly take a step forward 
I did not sink into the ocean
 
I stand still and hear another whisper in my hear
"Come closer, Ashley. Come Closer" 
 
A chill rushes down my spine and then back up
I look around and see nothing but the endless sight of the ocean and the man in the distance
 
I walk a step closer to the man
As I walk forward, so does the man in the distance
I continue to wonder if what I am seeing is real
I begin to walk across the ocean water
I look down and see the fish still swimming beneath me
The man in the distance continues to walk closer and closer to me
I continue walking towards the man in the distance
 
The man's figure begins to seem very familiar
I now can see the man's face
I look into his eyes, while mine begin to fill with tears
I realize now, my grandfather was the whispering voice
and the man in the distance was my grandfather
I hope that I am not dreaming
 
My grandfather's arms open 
I take a final step forward 
My grandfather put his arms around me and didn't let go
4 years past and I am in his arms again
 
My mind overflows with memories 
Watching TV with him, while sitting in his chair
Being chased around the house 
Having a "date" together at the Whole Donut
 
Seeing him laying on the couch
Watching as his skin got whiter and whiter
Seeing him so weak lying in the hospital bed
Watching him lay in the open casket
 
The memories stop
The sight of my grandfather goes out of my view
The whispering voice stops
I no longer smell the ocean breeze
I no longer stand on top of the ocean water
 
The water sucks me in
The fish swin around me
I can no longer see the never ending sight of the ocean
The sound of the waves crashing into each other is gone 
I am no longer sitting on a rock in the middle of the ocean
I am no longer feeling the wind blowing through my hair
I am no longer alone
 
I open my eyes again
I am not in the middle of the ocean sitting on a rock
I am lying in my bed
It was all just my imagination
I was never in the middle of the ocean
I was never listening to crashing waves
The whole time I was never alone
I was surrounded my my family and friends
 
But it was all felt so real
The waves
The birds
The wind in my hair
Seeing my grandfather
Hearing his whispering voice in my hear
 
It is just a matter of time. One day my time will come. On that day my imagination will come true. One day I will be reunited with my grandfather. I will  be able to be in his embrace and hear his voice. It is just a matter of time.
