Awaken

Today I woke up to the sound of birds outside my window.

I stretched and looked over to see my wife.

Instead I saw nothing but the pillow where she laid her head.

Memories of her came rushing back followed by the realization that she was gone.

I walked outside and sat down in my rocker, now watching the birds that woke me to their song.

I see my children playing in the yard chasing butterflies. Their curly hair blowing in the wind.

But as I watched they began to fade away, along with the birds and their song.

The smile I had while watching my girls started to fade and a chill came over my body.

My head dropped like a weight towards the ground. I noticed there was no breeze, no sounds of any kind.

I stood once again and began to walk inside to the kitchen. I leaned over the sink and turned on the cool water to wash my face.

I tightened my body for the shock of the cold water. But there was none in fact no feeling at all.

I now felt very scared and in wonder of what was happening to me so I rushed to the bed in order to calm myself and to figure out what was happening.

I felt something grasp my hand and I heard someone calling my name.

This time when I opened my eyes I saw a figure that I could only assume was God looking down at me.

I couldn’t move at all, the only thing I could do is utter the word yes.

The figure then spoke to me. My son I love all my children as i know you love yours.

you now lay here broken from the things you have put into your body.

While you slept I gave you visions of a few things you still hold dear to your heart.

I will heal you and give you a second chance BUT hear me when I say, the visions you had were real. And if you do those things again it will be for the last time.

But I will not take the things you love from you, but I’ll take you from them.

This was the day I became clean and sober
