Pretending calm I sat there
Looking at your empty chair
"Bless the hands," I said
"With whom I share my bed,
"And bring him safely back to me."

Struggling for sense
Working I did commence
"Bless the man," I prayed
"Who from me never swayed
"And bring him safely back to me."

Caught in the grip of fear
To Him I did turn my ear
And then, and only then
Did I know the surgeon
Would bring him safely back to me.

I sense an experience survived in this piece. It's scary to have someone you love go under the surgeon's knife. My father left a decade before my mother and she never stopped missing him. I wrote a poem about that and posted it at AuthorsDen.
