Sad but true story years ago/ however, hope did come back with 2 beautiful children for a daughter I love

Inspired by Sara Kendrick's contest. Love without hope brought back this memory.

The OB doctor had feverishly yelled orders in vain
only the nurses trying to save the last triplet remain
Laboring mom in agony trying to cope
Her heart bleeding love without hope

This is tragic, Shirley. I can't imagine the feeling ... it happens all too often, but at least the other two made it through okay. Heart-breaking :( Congrats on you win in the contest ... poetry based on reality always makes for the more hard-hitting stuff.
