Experience description:  

First I saw this light. The light was brighter then the sunlight. But it don't hurts in my eyes!

Then I heard a voice. First unclear and like whispering then it become louder an clear. I now realized that this was the voice of my father.

He was saying my name and my nickname. (Vanessa and Nessy)

I searched him but couldn't see anything. Then the light became a white hole and an arm was reaching after me. An arm with a watch on it like my father wore one (a cheaper version of a Rolex. The arm had blonde hairs like my father had and the long nail on the little finger. (He used to scratch his nose.)

Then he said: Vanessa...Nessy...Nein...NEIN...schau hier...dort...NEIN...

(In Englisch: Vanessa...Nessy...No...NO...look here...NO...)

When he said the words ''look here'' I saw a letter. A letter like the one I wrote him after gis death. I gave him the letter into his grave on the funeral day.

In this letter I wrote only one question: Are you angry with me, or even disappointed in me?
