 My dreams, my love, my hope could have all died.

 My laugh, my cries, with little white  lies.

 That day could have been my last, leaving with no goodbyes..

 The reck  made me terrified, 

 I laid in that hospital bed, there was when i realized.

 My mistakes, my fears,  i began to cry.

 I could have died.... but with all the fear i had, someone showed me it wasnt my time..

 Now i wonder, what would have been said, if that day would have been the end.

 I now realize i was so lucky and blessed, to be writing this poem,

 and living the rest......

Note: Saturday i was in a car reck and i could have died if we would have got hit on the door 
but i was so lucky cause God was watching over me.... I did so many things wrong and 
reality hit me... literally hit me.. I had to ride in the ambulance and the driver my ex step 
dad we think was stoned and b.c of that and not watching i may not have been here today to 
write this poem.... This is what i feel.. But im banged up right now and thats about it.. Thank 
you for reading this..
Yours Truly.....

    Elizabeth, I was also in a wreck that without Gods' grace I should have been killed. It was one of many of His miracles He has shown me in my life. It took some time to reflect to even realize how much he does for me and everyone else if we only open our eyes. I'm glad your still with us and enjoyed your poem very much. God bless you. Allan

    So sorry to hear about your accident, but you covered it well in this poem, well done. Check out my Two Brothers poem if you would be so kind.
