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.
