And finally........

Updated on September 25, 2011

He lay there in the quiet and he finally had time to think.The only remains of the visitors was a waste basket in the corner filled with grape stalks and wet tissues.The only certainty he had was his wife and son would return to the room soon,this dark room with only a lamp by the bed side for light.His wife still as young and as beautiful in his eyes as the first day he saw her,his son now passed the santa age but just below the drinking age.He feared for them and hoped that they would both be strong enough for each other to get through this tough time and be able to face the time ahead.He remembers asking the doc how long and the doc saying week maybe two and then coming home to tell his wife and son.He chose his own bed and as he coughed began thinking of life after death and weather he had followed the right god or not What was to come?What if he was wrong?Will he go to paradise or hell?How will they cope without me?He scared himself with these ideas and questions and the fear grew so he called out with scratched voice for his beautiful wife to come,he felt it was time and needed the company of someone,anyone.The room didnt feel safe the darkness grow and his breath was shortening.Oh for one more chance to do it all again only this time right this time be a better man,but it was to late his time was coming to a close,his maker was going to meet him or not.This was the end and finally......................................

The room door opened the light that came in was so blinding so warm and in this light a shadow,a shape,a figure,an angel?Then the voice not what the man was expecting thundered loudly "for the love of god John it is only the flu get over yourself..........."as she opened the curtains to let in the light of day".................man flu is not going to kill you!!!!!"
