A sweet song with a fast tempo

music composition and recording by DH

I had been struggling with some medical issues and later it was discovered that I had a benign brain tumor. However, during the times when I was feeling unwell, I found solace in writing poetry and lyrics. That was no different following the hours after my tumor was removed. As I reflect on those events, I recall that when one of the doctors came to see me in recovery that my eyes were closed.

He said, Ruth, "can you follow my fingers."
I responded, "I don't want to follow your fingers."
He then said, “I would feel terrible if we blinded you during that surgery.”

I opened my eyes and did as he requested. After being discharged from the hospital, I had an appointment with him. I told him that I couldn't find my sweet spot, a few days after that visit, I wrote ‘the sweet spot,’ lyrics.
I thought I lost my Sweet Spot
I began wrestling with life a little bit.
I thought I lost my sweet spot
I felt pushed far beyond my limits.

The hands of God were always there,
Even when I was drowning in despair.
The hands of God lead me to a place
And it was there, that I was repaired.

It was as if he said, hello dear.
I don't want you to quit.
And don't take your eyes off me.
Not even for a minute.

I wanted a life without scars.
So, I ignored his messages.
But in that moment I was aware.
My sweet spot had reappeared.

It was as if he said, hello dear.
I don't want you to quit.
And don't take your eyes off me.
Not even for a minute.
