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.
