How Can You… Hold An Earthquake?


How Can You … Hold An Earthquake?
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I stand waiting for you to come back to me
You are in front of me… yet, you are very far away
I wonder where … ‘you’ … are

I speak to you softly, saying … come back, Wick
Come back … I am right here; I’m watching over your body
It’s okay, Wick … everything is going to be all right

Like an earthquake that shakes the ground violently
Your body does the same … your precious legs kick
Your sweet mouth yawns, stretches in an awful grimace

I hear little sounds come from you that touch my heart
I want to gather you in my arms …
How can you … hold an earthquake?

Little by little your body begins to calm
Your legs slowly stop … running
I watch your face … as I wait for ‘you’ to come back

Finally, I see a glimmer of life … ‘you’ … in your soft, brown eyes
Sweet Chadwick, please come back, you’ve been gone five minutes
It’s been like a … lifetime; I missed you so, much

Little by little, you become aware of your surroundings
Slowly begin to sit up … look around to become oriented
I take a deep sigh of relief … Wick-Wick, you are back!

Everything’s okay again … I hope it won’t ever happen again
You had a seizure that I can only compare to … an earthquake
How can you … hold an earthquake?

  1. Is it another epileptic seizure hun??? 😦

    Not much can be done for him I’m afraid, just be with him when he has them.

    Love and hugs!

    • Prenin, this is the first time I could get ‘here’ on my internet. Today is the day my internet is supposed to begin working… it isn’t the best… but, it’s a good beginning! Chadwick had another seizure… and those words came to my mind as I stood over him, talking softly to him, and making sure his precious body didn’t hit anything to hurt him. Prenin, keep your fingers crossed for my internet to finally work good again! :))) Love, Gloria Oh, Skip works locally now…. I don’t have to worry about him being so far away, now! :))))))

      • Sorry Chadwick is still suffering attacks hun! 😦

        I’m glad you are getting some service back.

        Give the Skipmeister a hug from me – I’m so glad he’s working closer to home!!! 🙂

        Love and squishy hugs to you, Skip and the pups!!! 🙂

        Prenin.
