The Light

Before the world went dark,
She saw the girl.
The girl she just saved.
She was standing in awe,
Tears in her eyes.

She screamed the girls name,
But it was too late.
She was gone,
Even before the gun fired.
The car had gotten to her first,
Her cry of pain cut off
By the end.

When she left,
She didn't feel a thing.
The world was left behind.
She was flying,
Flying higher than any bird.
There was a light overhead;
It's large,
Immense.

She is floating,
Floating,
Flying,
Toward a light.
The light.
She was getting closer,
Voices surrounding her.

There was a man.
He was the light.
He was the source of man.
She stopped in front of him,
Forgetting the end,
The death,
And the voices.

Before she knew it,
There was a rush of heat,
And she was on the sidewalk.
There girl was there,
Hugging a little bear.

Her eyes...
The mans eyes were on her young,
Innocent face.

Goldeh...this is a wonderful poem, althought the meaning of it escapes me. I can still feel the emotion that went into it. I loved your ending stanza, a twist of events but a great ending. :) keep writing, I enjoyed the poem.

You did a really good job with this poem! I love how you depicted God in this, I've always wondered what he would look like too. God is in everyone, we're all his children!

Dreams, this poem is beautiful... It actually made me tear up a little bit. Not to mention that it is beautifully written. It kept me wanting to read more. You have perfect spelling and punctuation too, from what I can tell. I rated it 5 stars! :)

Very pretty, Dreams, you carry the reader right along with your character :) 

I do think it could be improved in one way; you switched tenses (present, past) all throughout the poem, which makes it a tad hard to read.
