Good Deeds are Always Remembered

I’m here lying in the bed a little shaken by what happened yesterday
This accident was the worst that I’ve witnessed to this day
How can I even think about myself after what I’ve seen
I felt like drinking a few coronas with some grenadine
As I pondered, I remember my head on the steering wheel with a tear in my eye
Thinking I’m sterile because it’s my tenth try
I thought, why can’t I get my wife pregnant? Is there something I should know?
And suddenly, there was a call on my radio
The message stated that there was an accident at the construction site nearby
So I started the ignition and flashing blue lights to rush to the scene to find out why
Once on the scene, there was a man in between two trucks on the verge of dying
One truck’s rear platform dissected the man at the waste; he was crying
He was told that he would die instantly once the platform was removed
So I immediately called his family and got them here before the truck was moved
The family said their good-byes then the truck moved forward and the man died
His family thanked me while the construction workers surrounded him and cried
All of a sudden, my wife nudged me to tell me she was going to the bathroom
While she was there, a shining bright light entered the room
As I continued to stare, an image of a man and a child came forward as one
The man looked like the one who just died. He said thank you and meet your future son
The image faded. My wife screamed! I asked, “what?” She said, “Honey I’m pregnant!”

|This one gave me cold shills. Such wonder! I had always heard that someone must die before another is born. This puts that saying in a different light. Maybe!!|
