HELPLESS

The waves crash upon the shore
On a bitter evening walk,
I can hardly move a step
As the wind takes my breath
And bites into my skin
Like a razor bringing blood.
I hang onto a rail and fear for my life
As the roaring ocean
Soaks me in one foul swoop.
My hands and body are frozen
I know if I let go of the rail
I will never see my family again,
I will be transported across the road
By the wind and cut to pieces
As the glass shatters in the shop window.
Either that or I will freeze to death.
Hurricane force winds show no compassion
Failing that I could be drowned.
There wasn't another soul in sight
I had to take a chance,
I counted and prayed as never before
The force of the wind lifted me bodily
I was sent flying through the air,
My body thudded against the glass window
And quite took the breath from my lungs.
Everything went dark I must have passed out
I woke in the hospital a broken leg for my pains,
I couldn't believe it I screamed I'm alive
It's a miracle I really should have died.
The glass didn't break or shatter
You have been very lucky said the nurse,
Just after they picked you up and brought you here
A driver was killed when smashing into that same shop.
it was your neighbour so I am informed
his wife is here now and recognised your name,
So I would say you're the lucky one
he was going to come out walking with you she said,
but that's fate I suppose you're are not to blame.
