โ€œTIME TO WAKE UP (OR, AT LEAST, OPEN YOUR EYES)!โ€๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ‘…

โ€œTIME TO WAKE UP (OR, AT LEAST, OPEN YOUR EYES)!โ€ a poem. a.k.a.: โ€œBirthday Card, On A Deathbed!โ€ June 27, 2018 (Wednesday)

โ€œNOTHING AROUND HERE APPEARS TO BE LASTING!โ€ she thought, one blustery day,

โ€œMy relationships, my looks โ€ฆ allโ€™s-fleeting – and, I guess, that is OK!

For I seem unable – to-maintain-things I choose:

My spouse, my shape, my wealth, my health –

All Iโ€™m bound to lose;

All these things, I know, I need to keep my peace of mind!โ€

These-things, the SPEECHLESS, BLIND girl,

Dying-(on her deathbed), โ€˜SIGNED!โ€™

I arrivEd, in the nick of time,

Before she could complete her rhyme,

To-remind-my-darling, deaf-dumb-and-โ€dark,โ€

She neednโ€™t be (pause) so very stark!

Itโ€™s true,โ€ said I; โ€œbut youโ€™re NOT interred!โ€

Her tears and whimpers, there, I stirred,

Her senses, as I spoke to one,

Who could not hear – a single pun,

I had for her – and NO SONG WOKE,

HER FROM – HER MALAISE,

And-thatโ€™s-no-joke!

YET, STILL I SPOKE, WITH LOVE AND JOY, TO TELL HER THINGS SHE MIGHT EMPLOY; LIKE: โ€œNOTHING LASTS, HERE-OR-ABROAD!โ€ and โ€œNOTHING ENDS, WHEN LOVE DOTH PROD – – – US-AROUND, CLUTCHING FAITH WITH HOPE!โ€

(pause)

โ€œWhy tell me this!!!! You great, big dope!?

I can not hear a word you say; and-I-can-not-speak,

On any day!โ€

SO, THERE –

She broke that silence-of-fear,

And acknowledged,

SHE COULD HEAR!

And speak and see,

Just fine, thought I!

I glanced the sparkle in her eye,

As-she agreed,

IN-ANGELIC-TONES:

โ€œNOTHING LASTS; CREATION MOANS! YET – ENDINGS ALWAYS WILL GIVE RISE, TO FRESH BEGINNINGS, IN OTHER SKIES!โ€ *
