I'm discharged from the hospital up and well
And to the world about the incident I begin to tell.....
Last week on a cruise we had set on a vacation,
Jake and I for our anniversary celebration,
On which day the destination we had to reach
Was a holiday resort aside the beach.
That morning I sing and awaken him,
Create special anniversary moments on film.
What disturbed us was the knock on the door
Opened it not knowing what was in store.
Masked men barged in with guns and knives,
For a moment we couldn't believe my eyes.
Jake tried to defend me,I stood scared in fright,
And within no time they had held us tight.
They were soon getting us off,one by one
On some deserted island with no where to run.
How to get away?There was no clue.
Only God could help for our rescue.
I had thought this to be a day we'd cherish forever,
Never expected it to be filled with terror.
Why had I planned for this vacation ?Why
Tears rolling down,I began to cry.
I hugged Jake and said that I was sorry,
We were in this mess all because of me.
He consoled me, wiped my tear
And said that we'd get through this, no need to fear.
