Once I Drank

Once I drank,
Know now I don't,
blissful lie,
now I won't.

Once I drank,
know now I can't,
thrice to die,
now I shan't.

Once I drank,
now I see,
life returned,
know now I'm me.

    Thank you, it took me three times in hospital, once in a coma and way to much knocking on heavens door to finally wake up. If words could save ay!
