In a Blink of an Eye

How often do we go about our daily lives, taking everything for granted?.. Well hands up… I’m guilty.. …….One lesson this last week has taught me….

 In a Blink of an eye.. All can change in an instant.

That instant was last Wednesday when my Husband collapsed and was rushed to Hospital… He was very poorly having lost a lot of blood from internally Bleeding all night from an Ulcer..

The outcome,- he is now recovering well…

These words I wrote the following night.


In a Blink of an Eye.

My strong man  buckled,  in a heap he did fall

Flashing lights and sirens, an Ambulance was called.

Along the Hospital corridors we quickly sped

With everything and nothing, spinning in my head.


Please God and Angels, Let him soon be well,

Fearful thoughts in my head, trying not to dwell.

Needles and tubes and oxygen mask

Each Medic performing precisely each task.


My Son and Daughter rushing to our side

Their worry and shock, trying hard to hide.

My better half no longer with a twinkle in his eye

And I swallow hard, trying not to cry.


Today I saw the NHS performing at its best

Pulling Hard together, completing all their tests.

A prognosis was given, ‘You have an internal Bleed’.

He reached for my hand, reassuringly I squeezed.


Procedures were performed, Drips were put in place

And slowly the colour was returning to his face.

Who would have thought how quickly life can change

Schedules, and Life styles, now will be rearranged.


Each Angel was thanked, as back to heaven they did soar.

You never know when fate comes knocking at your door.

His calling card delivered a reminder to us all,

Enjoy each precious moment, as Mr Grim could pay a call.


For in a Blink of an Eye, all you had could be lost

So Hug and tell your dearest you love them the most.

A happy ending has this Saga, and Love I so send.

My better half is recovering well and truly on the mend.

Life can slip through your fingers, just like a grain of sand.

So reach out and hold each others hand.

    This is so beautiful and touching what talent. I agree with you
    in all that you say it is so very easy to take all forgranted

    I am so glad to here your Hubby is on the mend. Thank Goodness. Its true we do take things for granted, we don\’t think we do but when something likethat happens. We do realize we really do more then we think.I promise not to over do it. My body tells to tell me when enough is enough and takeit easy. I tend to listen really hard lately.Yes you can use the blood cancer tag. I borrowed it from a friend lol  So don\’t mindsharing it or passing it on.Have a great Day …Hope

    If an angel is someone who\’s so filled with love,it\’s a gift that they constantly share,If an angel is someone who looks out for othersand gives them a nudge here and there,If an angel is someone who touches your lifewith a heart that\’s both joyful and wise,Then even though they don\’t have halo or wings,there an angel in human disguise.
    Take chances… a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up- and with who, it always ends up just the way it should be.
     Your mistakes make you who you are… you learn and grow with each choice you make.
    Everything is worth it.
     say how you feel- always .
     Be you, and be okay with it. It doesn\’t matter what any other person thinks.

    though the sails carry us across the ocean the stars our guide shine true
    the winds of love never change and in times of trouble they see us through
     it is with great sympathy do i write you now
    through the sails are down and the winds a gentle breeze
    true love shines when our loved ones are in need
    to your husband my head is bowed
    a solemn prayer goes to his ordeal a prayer to the testiment of your love to each other
    It is wonderful that he is on the mend, It is beautiful that there you have each other
    the reasons why we all need someone is so plain to see, as plain sailing across the ocean
    my regards and prayers are with you,  may god bless you both. x

    Nothing so bold only people should live life together as each moment might be are last. It we did we would learn to love more, forgive easier and not set sail on rough waters without the power of love to protect one.
