There was an incident that
Happened to me
Whether in truth of what this was,
or what I thought it to be!
I was ill with double pneumonia
And in extreme distress
And found myself taken to
Barnes Jewish Hospital the best!
That very night something came about
strange as could be..
I found myself in a single room alone,
with my breath leaving me.
Whether a dream or memory,
This was yet to be known
In this room I heard tinkling bells, and footfalls of others as if they were shown.
As time passed, I seemed to understand
That my heart beat slowed to the point of STOP and stand!
IT Seemed as real as real could be!
But could have been just a lovely dream!
Then suddenly my heart began to beat.
As if God spoke "NOT YET! THE NEXT BEAT WAS SWEET.!
Whether this was a dream or memory,
it was beautiful and serene!
Whether I stay or be dispatched,
The peace was of greatest beauty, matched!
For days I questioned God above.
If this was real, or simply God's sweet love.
A week or so after this came to be.
I found the room I had been in and was pleased!
Real or not, no difference made,
For I found myself in God's sweet shade!
A shade so grand by far. It mattered not
What be or are. The grace I found
myself was God's own Beauty
And this more beautiful,surround!
