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?
