My Life

The first time I was on a near death experience,
I was 25

Cold winter day
Lightly snowing
Icy roads
Frost coved windshields 
Car lights passing
And gone
Kids in the backseat
Music going loud
Talking on the phone
Screaming and crying 
Wild like a zoo...my zoo

On the freeway 
Signs flying by,
Cars speeding past
A deer in the center of my lane
Sliding this way and skidding that way
I heard the kids go quite then screaming 
Louder than before with fear in their voices
It was all a blur
We were on a thin sheet of ice and I heard cracking 
But the one thing I can remember the most was what I didn’t know 
How to make it all go away, how to make it back to normal 
Living my life the same, I don't think I can

I don't really remember what happened 
Next but there was a flash of light and I shut my eyes,
But when I opened them 
We were in a white room, bright with lots of colors
Flowers, toys, big teddy bears
 

1 deer is all that it took 
For me to realize how 
Fragile and precious life is...
I didn't know what happen but I think I had help from above...
