A little girl cries out,"Mommy where are you?"
She hears a wispy voice above her
"Baby girl I'm right beside you."
The little girl looks around
But doesn't see a thing
She says,"I can't see you!"
The voice above says,"Keep looking, you'll see me."
The little girl looks around more slowly.
She looks to the left and sees a shadow
The shadow becomes more clear.
The little girl cries,"Mommy!!"
She runs over to her mother
ready to give her a hug
But she runs right through the shadow.
She turns around and stares.
The says,"Mommy how come I went through you?"
Her mom says,"baby girl I'm gone remember?"
Tears start to well up in the little girl's eyes.
Her mother says,"Don't cry sweetie, I'm still with you."
The little girl says,"How come i never see you?"
The mother says,"Because I'm only in your heart."
Then she starts to fade.
The little girl screams,"Mommy!! Don't go!!"
She's quickly fading out of sight.
Soon there's nothing left.
The little girl is left alone to cry.
She bunches up and starts to sob.
Then she wakes up.
The nightmare is over.
