I Can't Recall - Poem by Orlando Belo

When I opened my eyes after being asleep for many days,
nothing appeared clear, everything was a haze.
They told me things would become clearer in no time at all,
and then even my memory I would recall.

When I was in the sleeping world, it was as if I was dead,
I had no thoughts in my mind, or memories in my head.
No erotic imaginings, or frightening horrific dreams,
no feelings of life, or ever being.

But now I'm awake, where have I been for all these days,
and what caused me to miss out in so many ways?
Why can't I remember who I am and why I'm lying here?
I've no memory of my family, and feel no pain, or fear.

I'm told that I was found in my car at the bottom of a river,
and I was rescued and revived by an anonymous life giver.
No one saw who rescued and breathed new life into me,
but I feel like a new man full of life and energy.

    I seems like a journey into a wonderland where one is lost in wilderness and then with the organic help of an unknown noble soul he regains his composure once again. Thanks.
    When I was in the sleeping world, it was as if I was dead,
    no feelings of life, or ever being.
