An odd sensation was all she was aware

a pain and the darkness

awoke suddenly alone in her apartment

as if from a deep sleep

everything seemed exactly as before

yet different was so sure!


On the large settee she found herself laid

adjusting her blurred vision

her pet dog came to lick the hanging hand

but never felt the sensation

concerned sat up it was then she realised

life had been deprived!


Her body was on the settee white and still

yet she seemed so real

the dog slowly backed away as if in fear

her husband came in

from a night shift and to her side ran

a tired shattered man!


She had loved him now could not touch

only watch as he tried

to revive the woman he had just wed

phoning for an ambulance

in shock laid beside her loudly praying

their pet with a ball playing!


Paramedics came very quickly with aid

watching expecting the light

her husband holding their fluffy pet dog

hearing every word they said

both tried everything to start the heart

not wanting her forever to part!


Surely it was too late life had now passed

but a weird sensation

more pain a deep breath and a gentle kiss

a warm hand gentle breath

knowing she was back alive and not alone

really hearing his soft tone!


Upon a stretcher drips in arms on oxygen

heading to the medical centre

heard a voice an image of her dead father

faintly saying not your time

my precious child but I am always near

later was certain she did hear!


Eighteen months seemed to have flown by

their dreams had come true

back in hospital for birth of their child

the problems now melted away

happily over time her strength grew

incredibly life had begun anew!

The Good Samaritan

There by the dusty war damaged road

laid the body of an aid worker.

A Good Samaritan who gave so much

supporting those helpless.

Caught in this countries bloody fight

a victim of the plight!


Brave or foolish there are those willing

to live and work in crisis.

With no safety for themselves but others

yet treated as an enemy!

Being humanitarian above self-preservation

or the risk of retaliation!


Through their incredible work and sacrifice

unsung heroes of modern times.

They continue regardless being murdered

within a cycle of evil!

Bringing compassion where there is none

their pleads the leaders  shun!


The Good Samaritan was returned to his family!


Rest In Peace.


The Foureyed Poet.
