Freedom

Magnificent Hummingbird Hovering

Freedom

The whirring sound of dialysis,
brings hope to my saddened soul.
Time stands still,
while waiting for answers.

Tiny hummingbirds
fly outside your hospital window.
Reminding me of your carefree days;
filled with freedom of flight.

Word comes in steadily
throughout the day.
All hope of recovery has faded,
along with my dreams.

There is a wretched ache in my heart;
nothing will dull this pain.
I pray your soul is like the hummingbird,
leaving its’ nest, searching for higher ground.

  2. How touching! I can feel the pain for a loved one. Often is worse than our own pain.
    May our prayers reach high ground too!
