The vast white silence
Resounding in his dreams
He sleeps, floating through transparent fantasies
He sees heaven
He sees hell
Demons and angels laughing
The dull pulse of a respirator
Breathing life into his veins
And he sleeps on
His consciousness limited to the barriers of his mind
His closed eyes
Locked gates to reality
He cries for the curtain to be moved aside
But he is trapped inside
Lost inside the depths of a bleak void
Awake, but still sleeping...

this is one of the most touching poems i've ever read.  

it took me back to the day that i stood by my grandfather's bed as they "unplugged" him and i watched his life slip away...

with tears in my eyes,
i say thank you.
