Life support is love apparatus

She came to me DOA 
A victim of a devastating wreck 
Her angelic face was pale in color 
and her eyes were a beautiful blue 

I applied every ounce of energy within me to resuscitate her 
shouting at times come on don't you quit on me 

I was such a little fish in a big pond and still green behind the gills 
Everyone I trusted to assist me committed mutiny 
To much effort to save a life or to involved with their own agendas 

I was granted a miracle that day
a true blessing 
she started coming around 

I was never happier never so relieved but 
still unsure of what would come next 

I stood there beside her trembling with fear 
my mind was mush and I was exhausted 

She was scared and in pain 
I told her don't be afraid I'm here to help 
She trusted me and reached out for my hand 
I held her for as long as I could 
only turning away for something to comfort her with  
but before I got the chance to place it on her
she was gone 

I cried tears that I never would have believed existed 
I can't forget her face or those eyes in such need of me 
In all of my years she was the first and only one 

She is gone now but she'll live on forever
It’s like she became a part of me 
Keeping me strong in my faith 
and I'm better because of her 

God brought her to me that day
he planned she'd find her way to me 
I never gave up on her when others tossed in the towel 

Because of that experience I'll remember her till the day I die 
I hope and pray I get to see her in heaven so that I can thank her 
for having shown me the way
