Am I Dead or Alive
I was gasping for air.
Rising to the surface and sinking again.
Slipping off the slimy rocks.
Trying to climb up again.
I see flashes of my cat and dog,
that have passed on,
and they were floating above me.
I saw my beautiful, lovely, ginger cat staring at me,
like when she wanted food.
Then I saw my German Shepard puppy,
wagging his tail from side to side,
not barking though,
just like when he was alive.
My whole life flashed before my eyes.
Am I already dead?
Or are they giving me a sign to carry on living?
