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?
