 ramblings and things

I heard this voice saying

You really gave us a scare,

I opened my eyes to smile
At the nurse standing there.

I saw my family gathering

Stretching back many a  year

I could almost touch them
They were standing so near


All of them were smiling

Some stood with open arms

Then I was jerked back by

The life support alarms.O

I smiled at them and said

I’m not coming yet, not today,

And watched as my family

Started to slowly fade away.


Time to carry on living

Time to carry on the fight:

So very tempting but

The time just wasn’t right.

Come the event

wonder will I find 
Them waiting or were they

Just creations of my mind.
