Lyric

MichaelS36

218 views

I must say I struggled with this one. And I am sorry there is only one. However, here it is and it has been hopefully improved somewhat after a talk with AC.  This one is about our last trip to the hospital …

 

 

I force you to the hospital

and you won’t recall it

you fight me like a frightened thing

because you are hurting

 

You, my love are so very strong

yet you are made of glass

the hidden flaws begin to show

widening tiny cracks

 

As I pace the long corridor

fearing for your future

wondering if you'll be the same

or now forever changed

 

Once you finally awaken

groggy from all the meds

I am allowed to sit with you

and hold onto your hand.

 

Your life has been so very hard

I want for you some peace

respite from the haunting specters;

some quiet blessed sleep

You may have struggled with this one, Mike, but what you feel in your heart and in your mind comes through loud and clear. You are tim’s boulder, and for that, we are all grateful. 

 

Well done.
