Sudden Shifts

Slumbering tight, void of light
Shrill screech comes in the night
Answer the call, tragedy fall
Time slows to a crawl

Can’t go to him, get the prelim
Something shifted, made him grim
His mind tumbled, causing bodily fumble
Causing worlds to crumble

He wasn’t sick, must be a trick
Healthy except for walking stick
Told he’s in bed, something wrong in his head
World takes a sudden shift to dread

Numb as I wait, can’t think straight
I don’t care that it’s tremendously late
Search for aid, arrangements made
Hoping his departure from life is delayed

When he awakes, his face quakes
Mind flashing over life’s mistakes
Don’t let it end, more time to spend
With those he loves – please be on the mend
