The Suffering of Friends

It is harder to watch someone in a hospital,

Than to be the patient.

It gets exponentially harder,

The sweeter, and brighter spirits,

They are.

She isn’t just a light,

She is happiness incarnate.

And there isn’t a thing I can do.

But I take time and hold it,

As it holds her here.

She may suffer,

But with all that I am,

I demand,

She is not over.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
