Two weeks out from the triple by pass

Back from open heart surgery.

I now know I am mortal.

I now know what pain is.

I now know we cling to life.

 

Two weeks ago,  I cheated death,

Although the grim reaper is still in the corner of my room.

I now reflect on my life and what made it.

 

Family is number one.

 

My kids rally around me.

I am a lucky man.

 

My wife is my mainstay.

I will fight  on.  What choice is there?
