I Don'T Want To See The Angels

The countdown has begun.
1 week and 4 days.
Anesthesia scares me.
Will I awaken?

I'm finding myself
getting things in order.
For what?
I'm not sure.
I seem compelled
to write notes to my kids
and husband.
To assure they know
I love them.

People say,
''Don't worry, you'll be fine.''
Do they know?
Can they guarantee this?
(I'd like to get that in writing) .

The thought of this being my
last 11 days
really puts life into perspective.
I am stepping outside of myself
and seeing what it would be
for them
without me.

You say I'm being dramatic?
DRAMATIC?
Perhaps.
But, who knows what is planned?

The only angels I want to see
when I wake up from surgery
are the ones that are driving me
to the hospital.

My Pop doesn't really like poetry, but I really think he will like this one, because he will be able to relate to it. I loved it. -Danny

Be patient Mary! there is a light at the end of the tunnel.......every dark cloud has a silver line..............this is not a silk road and there are ups & downs.Let the Angels fly to the sky..........and we can live on earth peacefully.
Dear Mary I feel very strongly that I will be speaking to you again after the 11 days, I will pray for your safety for now, during, and for recovery, We will talk again, Love Duncan
