Feeding Operations Spinal taps Bone marrows Saving lives Parents crying Children dying Clinging to life On a hope Wishful thinking Prolonged results Death is eminent Praying in pause Attached to machines To stay alive Battling for time Gasping for breath Inhaling oxygen Keeping you stable With positive thinking To ease the pain Only for so long Until it strikes back again Fighting to survive Through another day Never giving up To the last moment Exhausting all possibilities Before letting go Of a sad fate Illness in remission Or way to late
