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