The ER is a very chaotic place sometimes,
Happy people trying to save lives,
Good mornings escape into late evenings,
& No one will ever know when their time comes….
They called my phone said some blood was spilled,
Trauma room, a spirit gone away…
The puddle of blood was immense,
I’m sure she lost gallons,
Her eyes slightly open, will an absent sound of IV machines,
as I stare at this lifeless human being,
I begin to think back to my family.
There is nothing more traumatizing than witnessing a young teenage girl,
Discover the news of her mother, that has passed.
Even tears couldn’t show my sympathy.
Her hand had lost its grasp,
Blood dripping as I struggle between human emotion and professionalism,
NEVER WILL I EVER FORGET THIS DAY

Rest In Peace to a stranger that I will never know. Much love to the family that will miss her dearly
