A Contest Entry
"A Letter~" by TommyWrites

“It is time for you to come home, my beloved.” 

I blink, frantically looking around for the one who spoke the words. Gray fog surrounds me, trapping me, suffocating me. The voice seems to be coming from everywhere; echoing, drawing, soothing. It penetrates my soul. 
“Who…” my voice trails as a sudden light appears ahead of me. It is shaped like a man, and yet I know it is not a man. No, it is the Creator of man. 
“Father!” tears of joy streak down my cheeks as I fall to my knees. 

“My child, my beloved child. Your time must soon come to an end. It is soon time for you to come Home,”

I look up at the shining light, at my true Father, “Your will is mine,”

The sound of thunder rumbles through my skull as the light starts to fade.  “Not yet my beloved. Not yet. You must say your goodbyes. You must wake up,” His voice is getting distant, further away. I feel myself slipping, falling, awaking. 

“I don’t want to wake-”


I jerk awake, gasping for breath. My body shakes uncontrollably as I rip off my blankets and stumble out of bed. My bare feet press into the soft carpet as I fall toward my desk. My knuckles turn  paperwhite as I grip the back of my chair, grounding myself to the earth. 

I’m going to die.

“Oh my…” tears fall in a little river down my face, ending in a ocean of emotions. I have to tell my family. I have to tell them how much they mean to friends. I have so much to say, so much I need to do. I glance at my clock, 6:05 am. None of them are going to be awake. How am I going to tell them I’m suddenly going to die? They’ll think I’m crazy! They’ll put me in an asylum for insane people and then I’ll never get a chance to tell them how much I love them. Oh God help me...
“Calm down...calm down. It’s okay. Just...breathe,” Breathe. Right. After a few unsteady minutes, I collapse in my chair staring blankly at my desk cluttered with unfinished writings.

I’m going to die. I’m going to...go to Heaven. 
I spoke to

Swallowing, I do what I do best. I pull out a stack of paper along with my favorite gel pen. 
“Okay…” taking one big breath, I start doing what I do best. I write every single loved one a letter, telling them how much I love them, how much they mean to me. I use the only way I know how to get these words and feelings out. Writing. 

My Last Day writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Write a story based on what you would do if you woke up in the morning and knew it was your last day on earth. You can tell the reader how you know (i.e. a knowledge of future events, a forecast by a gypsy... whatever you want to come up with.) Would you tell the people in your life? Would you try to do good things?

Author Notes
If I ever have something like this happen...I want to be able to write all of my loved ones a letter telling them how much they mean to me. I'm not great with my words, I do better with writing.
