a story dedicated to my father and my grandmother, even though ill never show them!

the day I came back to life

by isabellathena

I remember the day I came back to life,

I drove by your house a million times, this time I took the left

I did not knock when I came in,

you always said that it was not a home if you had to knock.

I saw you on the couch slumped over, Grandma was in her room

You stood up so fast, I have never seen anyone do anything so fast.

Grandma came around the corner crying when she heard me.

You said "I cant believe this is true."

I wanted to seem in control of myself, so I didn't cry.

But the way that the room changed from grey to gold, broke my heart.

We all talked awkwardly for some time, then I had to go.

You told me that it was the best day of your life.

I went to buy shoes that were said to last forever,

something that would always remind me of the day I rose from the dead.

This was a powerful story. Emotions are flying everywhere. You are catching them with your pen and putting them on paper. Very well done. Great work!!!
