"In my dream" I got lost in a forest rapidly it became dark and could not find my way back home. I kept walking until I found myself in a forest clearing and OMG there in front of me there was this huge wall that extended to right and left for miles !! Right in front of my eyes the was this TALL, TALL IRON GATE. On the other side of the gate there were lots of people, they were very happy and celebrating. The light " on the other side " was amazing, but not blinding. I climbed the iron gate because I wanted to SEE and talk to my dad, I NEW HE WAS THERE.
I did not see him or
anybody... they were invisible but THEIR ESSENCE WAS THERE. MY DAD TALKED
TO ME and told me I could not enter the gate, ONLY DEAD PEOPLE were allowed
inside. I insisted that I want to be with him even if I have to die.....another
person took my hands OFF the gate and told me that I'll be there sometime
but for now I should go back to where I came from, I should GO back to my
mother and my sister.
