IS ANYONE OUT THERE?

"Is Anyone Out There?" I try to ask but my words have no voice.

Why am I beginning to tremble? Is it because my soul mate and I will become one. Out there, in a tiny chapel, amid the glow of candles, we'll join hands. The scent of magnolias and roses will surround us as soft light reflects through the vivid stained glass windows. Our friends will smile and our moms will cry. The cold harshness of the world will soften and melt away when we kiss - my spouse and I. We'll eat wedding cake, drink pink champaign, and dance...oh, how we'll dance. Though a lifetime away I see it so clearly - the destiny awaiting me.

"Is anyone out there?" I wonder.

My heart is leaping. Could it be the anticipation of our honeymoon in Tuscany? As they say, "The heavens will move; the angels will cry." We'll taste the wine and taste each other, there in Tuscany - my sweetheart and I. We'll explore the sights and sounds as other tourists do, then back to our suite to ...you know. Yet, this is but a glimpse of what now seems so far away.

Is anyone out there?

Should I feel this strange? Perhaps, it's just nervousness that comes with the knowledge that someday I'll have children of my own. The thought of raising kids causes concern and I know there will be times of worry and tears. Yet, I imagine tiny fingers grasping mine and how I'll feel when they call me, "Dad." We'll fly kites at the shore when the days are warm and when it's cold we'll drink hot cocoa and tell stories by the fire. There will be birthdays to celebrate, Christmas presents to open, photo albums to fill, and happy memories to make. We'll sing songs and share our lives together - my wife, my kids and I. One girl, two boys - the boys will look like me. Karen will come first and soon after James, Jr. will arrive. Tommy will be a surprise and he will follow in my footsteps. What an awesome view into what tomorrow holds for me.

Is anyone out there?

I feel kind of sick. My hands are shaking now yet in the future they will be the steady hands of a surgeon. I can see the way they will save those under my care. "Gifted and brilliant" is what they're saying - they're talking about me!

Is anyone out there?

Something is wrong - wrong, like when a child needs the refuge of his mother's arms. I need those arms around me now for comfort and protection. Why am I so alone right now?

Is anyone out there?

I will soon be able to taste the cake and a know the tingle of the champaign. What wonders will my senses experience - a woman's love none the least of them. And the highs, how purely satisfying will they be - the exhilaration of saving a life as only the hands of a surgeon can. But before I do this, I have to get born.

Is anyone out there?

My body is shuddering and trashing uncontrollably. The pain, in my head is so sharp. Where are my mother's arms? Comfort me, mom, please in my distress. I feel like my bones are breaking. Life is leaving me, slowly.

Someone's in here - is anyone out there?

Yes, there is, I see them. I see them and I see me - what's left of me.

"Vivian," I hear them say.

My mom is opening her eyes. (Hi, mom, can you hear me?) The man with the white coat and glasses takes mom's hand. "It's done," he tells her. She seems relieved. I fade away softly watching her - my creator and destroyer.

"Is anyone out there?" The question's been answered for me
