Your breaths come further and further apart.
We stand around your bed as the sunshine streams in the window with tears running down our faces. The door squeals as it opens and your sweet nurse enters with tears in her eyes, and she joins our huddled group.
Christmas carols play softly. You love Christmas so much… Sirens in the distance mark another ambulance’s path and another life forever changed. You have touched so many lives. You are loved so much. A friend slips in and comes to your side, it is agony to watch the monitor as seconds pass with out a breath but its even worse not to watch. How did we get to this point? I’m so tired.
I’ll be home for Christmas… If only in my dreams…
