I walked out into the world. I walked out into the sun. I stopped to smell the flowers. I stopped and listened to the laughter of the children. I watched as birds swooped in over the water for a tidbit of food.
I sat in a golden wheat field. I watched as the breeze blew through the nimble stalks. I watched each one bend to the will of the wind and change slightly in color.
It was next that I saw the Weeping Willow. I parted it's hanging branches like a curtain. I sat below it, I sat there shielded from the outside world, the branches swaying around me like some exotic dancers of a new tune.
I walked in the Rose garden. I breathed in the sweet aroma. I marvelled at such beautiful things, at the vivid colors, at the thorns that protected such a delicate flower.
I walked along the shore of the Pacific. I was in awe at the sheer power of it, the waves breaking against the rocks. The thunderous sound that accompanied each break. I listened to the gulls. I watched the sun shimmer off the surface of the water and I wondered at it's ability to continue it's ceaseless assualt on the shore.
I stood on a high mountain. I breathed in air so lite, air so fresh. I looked down upon the world and I decided, what a beautiful place it was. I decided what a wonderful thing our heavenly father had given us.
I descended the mountain, I left the wheat field, I retreated from the rose garden, I left the willow to weep alone, I left the pacific to continue crashing and boasting of it's power, The sound of the childrens laughter retreated into the background.. I left the birds flying high and low.
I was alone, that was ok, I had walked out into the world, I saw a new world, one of peace and security, a beautiful world standing as our creator had intended from the beginning.
I retreated inside myself, I was happy, My family one and all, kissed my forehead. I closed my eyes, my spirit escaped, this was my final sleep..
