Faces... (For those who wait - Fireflight)

The other night I had a dream. A sad kind of dream where I cried my pillow wet.

It was first day back in school after a long holiday. I saw everyone greeting each other cheerfully in their blue uniform. Everyone was smiling and laughing, hugging and embracing each other. They all looked excited to be back in school, to tell off their adventure during the holidays.

However despite everything that was going on around me, it felt as though I was watching all the commotion from inside a fish tank. Where their smiles and laughters could not reach me, where their conversations were muffled and where everything was moving in a slow motion. I felt alienated.

I went looking for my classmates at where we would queue up for the assembly but I couldn't find them. All around me was faces of people who is familiar but not my friends. I searched every queueing line in the hall but my classmates were no where to be found. My classmates are gone!

I felt dizzy. I don't understand what was going on. I remember panting, grasping for air. My vision blurred with small black dots.

Then just before I passed out, I heard someone telling me that my classmates have all moved on to the next level but I was left behind, because I had cancer...

And then I woke to the darkness in my room... ...this is for those who wait...
