Everything Has Changed

Everything has changed

My life re-arranged

Emotions estranged


A major life event

Has left me spent

With a psychological dent


A brain hemorrhage

So near the fridge

Closing my eye lids


Two days in a coma

Intelligent life a misnomer

Six days as a loner


Holding onto a nurse’s hand

A two man band

Returning from another land


I saw distant stars

From heaven afar

Life had raised its bar


I have personal wishes

That the man who sewed the stitches

Could be ordained with personal riches


I have never met him awake

So this resolution I make

To say thanks for his sake


I had to say thanks

Raising money out with banks

As one of my life’s achievements ranks


A new day brings a new dawn

Three years later a little angel born

I appreciate life on every morn


Periodically I revisit the RVI

But it was Newcastle General where I nearly died

And which I praise all the time


Everything has changed in time

I am so very grateful down the line

That somebody saved my life
