He had been laying in a coma
For days, and weeks on end,
The Doctor finally said
No more can we pretend.

I think we must do something
For his body to let it rest,
There is nothing more to do
There is no other test.

He was speaking to the family
And they finally all agreed,
But a voice within the shadow said
"You didn't speak with me"

The vacant eyes of the patient
Gave a gentle stare,
The pulse became much stronger,
The brain much more aware.

The stranger in the background
Left without a trace,
No one knew just who he was,
As they never saw his face.

Miracles do happen
Every now and then,
And in the faded shadow stands,
Our most devoted friend.

Lynn Barany
