Seizures, 100% life support, six times in 10 years!
|Coma, drug induced
Angels of ICU there to save her
Can they, will they
There she lies, still, no feeling
Tubes, machines doing all
I hold her hand, stroke her hair
Fighting my panic, fear, pain, tears
Gushing, rushing, emotional wave
Surging physical force tearing me apart.
Close my eyes, deny this reality
Not daring to leave her, nor breathe
Can sheer will keep her alive
Demanding , machines work, work
I smother my weariness
Vacantly staring around the ICU
My baby, I need you!
I Love You!
Come back to Daddy!
And God heard
And God answered!
And I held her close again
And I heard her mumbled words!
And the spark of life returns
And my soul steamed relief
How did we do it
Six times over the years
Living in ICU, Death so near
as and prayer
But we are so wonderfully lucky
It is so easy, so very easy you see!
She Is Alive! We hold her, talk to her
Not with flowers over her grave, No!
Each day we can embrace her, talk, laugh and cry!
She Is still Alive! She is HERE!
