It Happened!
 


It Happened!



I will admit that life has not always been kind

Offering me sadness and trauma and strife,

But I have looked past it all and lived

Each moment given to me in my life.

I did live from moment to moment,

Then came a life changing morning.

It was unseen and unexpected

To be that near to death

Without even one small warning.

But oh how I fought and I survived

With His help I did thrive.

I did not know or understand

That He guided me in the fight

But He had a plan, you see…

A plan that granted me

An unknown gift, the gift of sight.

It was not sudden and I had to choose

To believe in Him and his offered gift.

Without it I would surely lose

The little sight I had….so I did uplift

My faith and trust in His mercy

And believe that maybe once again

I could live from moment to moment

As I did way back when….

And it happened!

I was granted what I had never known

In one moment’s breath

A blessing I was shown.

I remember the moment

Of impending death…

And the moment

Of that deepest breath.

From moment to moment…

From breath to breath

I lived, loved, trusted, believed,

Oh the miracle I did receive.
