Nearly Death Expereince - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

Last week. while I'm riding in my motor cycle
I felt my breast heart beat suddenly double
that made me felt thousand pricking needle
causing me to felt numbed beyond my nipple.

I had to stop and took a rest at the shade of a tree
while I my heart keep on jumping without melody
making me felt nervous till I could not move my body
while I was lying down under the shade of the tree.

While I'm gasping for my breath, I sent a message
to my family to take me where I am about to fade
then after a long while, I felt I'm helplessly laid
In a car that took me to the hospital for first aid.

While I'm having delirium as I felt my body numbed
making me unable to move even the tip of my tomb,
my vision get blurred as I begun to hear no sound
but I keep on praying as I felt my tongue was down
'God Forgive me and unto thy hands, my soul I commit
As I felt my breath begin to fade away all its spirit.

I heard the nurses said” Awanen, nalam-miis bagi nan”
As they tried to inser dextrose, ECG and oxygen hose
While I felt my body become harder and heavier
With coldness devouring my body trembling with fever.

Then all of a sudden, I traveled following a shimmering light
But I can’t directly look upon for its blurring my eyes
As I felt my body lifted without pain as I rested my sight
To behold the devouring darkness slowly eating my cries.

Then after a long long while feeling so light and empty
I heard someone said, “matago vos pige as Melvin”
Then I felt a palm so warm touching my forehead
That triggered my eyes to open to behold I’m alive.

At that very moment, I accepted that, that was my end
To see the beauty of life and every breath of my children
But God who gave my life decided not to let me be fallen
That I could still write and share my passion for my brethren.
