Laying on the bed straining against pain
I hear you whispering under your breath,
“Get out of ME!”
Knelling by your side
I run my hand across your soft brow
and whisper into your breath
“Is there anything I can do?”
With compassion in my eyes
I helplessly look at you.
With gratitude in your eyes
you bravely look at me
And whisper, “Don’t worry, I’ll be okay.”
Our eyes lock in an embrace.
Whispers of love mingle in our breath
and pain exhales.
