Here's a massive thank you
and it's meant straight from the heart.
But I’m not really a poet,
so I don't know where to start.
It all began one Friday night
with bad pain in my tum.
You took me to the hospital,
when the ambulance didn't come.
They prodded, poked and tested me
to see what they could find.
But with you sitting next to me,
it helped to ease my mind.
Injections, drips and tablets came
and testing of my blood.
Eventually they did a scan
and found it wasn't good.
'Put your gown on, time to go',
there wasn't time to waste.
This must have been the hardest time
that we had ever faced.
You did your best to keep me calm,
though you were full of fear.
I don't think I'd have made it through
without you being near.
So I was gone for four long hours.
It must have seemed so long.
I don't know how you made it through.
You had to be so strong.
The next thing, I was waking up.
You're the first thing that I saw.
The relief was clear on your face.
You couldn't take much more.
They'd given me a stoma
and a bag to catch my poo.
I wouldn't have to spend my life
depending on the loo.
Fifteen years of IBS
had took its toll on me.
Suddenly my life had changed
and I was feeling free.
You've stood by me through all those years
and never once complained.
But now it's time to start again
with this new life that I've gained.
So thanks for all the love you give.
I'm proud that you're my wife.
Let's enjoy our new found freedom,
now I have a 'bag for life'.
