An Angel At My Side


Jonathan Isenor

Saw my life almost pass me by

Thought I was going to die

With my head hanging over the toilet bowl

Tried to keep my eyes open

So I wouldn’t slip into a coma

Part of me wouldn’t let me go

I fought the hardest I ever have that night

I thought that my life was threatened

Two things saved me that night

The same desire that I have to write

Burned inside of me differently that night

I just wanted to live

I just wanted to breathe fresh air

And take in all of life’s beauty

The other thing was an angel at my side

Doing everything to keep me awake

To make sure that my life was not cut short

Because of these things

I managed to make it through

Thank God for the angel that I was given.
