Sunday Scribbling - "I Knew Instantly..."



I knew instantly
as you were placed in my arm's
my heart would never
beat without yours.

I knew instantly
as you passed before my eye's
It would never be forever,
but until we meet again.

I knew instantly
as I looked into your eye's,
your rare love reflected,
a strong eternal flame.

I knew instantly
as he gave me the diagnosis
I would not accept it while
living until the cure.

I knew instantly
as I counted my blessing's
I had been given a gift
of staring down death.

Hi Tammy,
I don't know if you remember me? I used to visit here regularly, but I've not been blogging in quite a while and lost my link list. I've been seeing a "Tammy" on sites I've re-found or new ones and wondered if it was you!

Your poem tugs at my heart: powerful words of love plus highlights your battling skills. I'm delighted to have found you again and to be reading here.

Hugs,
Gel

Dear Tammy--
This is what I'm talking about...and why the poem came to me about you for the osi prompt 'distractions'!

Thank you for so much...
