The windows are clean
The pillows are soft
The sheets are pristine
The TV is off
I miss you so much
Won’t you come around
We haven’t heard a whisper
We haven’t heard a sound
If can hear me
If you are awake
I came to see you
So you don’t forget
I don’t have a lot
But I brought you flowers
I’m only allowed
For visiting hours
The medicine is stronger
The treatments are longer
Than we could have dreamed
I know that you’re tired
And you don’t belong here
But I still believe
One day the doctor
Will tell us you’re better
And you’re ready to leave
But I will keep coming
And sitting beside you
Until you revive
The bed is adjusted
The magazines placed
My fingers are warm
On your quiet face
I miss you so much
I wish you were here
Just wanted to say
There is someone who cares
That was beautiful. It made me cry.
Trapped by this body
My skin a prison
This coma my sentence
I wish I could tell you
But my mouth won’t move
I wish I could see you
But my eyes won’t unclose
I’d tell you I think of you
All of the time
And ask you to read me all of your rhymes
But I can’t and I hope you understand
This is not how I wanted all this to go
Here I am unable to move
You’re all I think about I hope you know
So if I had one thing to say it’d be
I love you, please don’t go
You certainly returned the favor. I shed many tears writing it, and then again reading your reply. Thank you for taking the time to read my words and respond ❤
I am thankful to share the thought with you. ❤
Nothing really ends like the movies do
I never found the sunset to ride into
Ends may have a period but–dot dot dot
They can say it’s over but it’s not not not
Nothing works as advertised on TV
I never found a fat lady to sing to me
Sentences are punctuated “dot dot dot”
When you think it’s over but it’s not not not
I never got tired enough to just give up
I never was quite content to abandon a friend
I never had peace to just turn and leave
I never said goodbye and I can tell you why
Life has got a timer on it–dot dot dot
One day it will shatter but it’s not not not today
This is cute. 🙂 In all of my favorite movies the main character or the main character’s lover always dies. :p
I’m glad that is not always the case though. Sometimes in my heart I pretend that my life is a movie and resolve is not far away.
I wonder who would play me in a movie?
I don’t think anyone would be quite adequate. You should probably play yourself! Stunt doubles are only for dangerous scenes. We want to see the real person in the close ups 😉
I think i would want to also be my own stunt double… I like to take some risk. 😉
You have moved me to tears, you have caught the pain and the helplessness 0f the visitor and the visitee . I have been on both sides of that coin I hope you have not but by the depth of your insight I fear you have. A beautiful poem truly. May all be well with you.
Thank you. There is little I can imagine to compare to seeing the agony of someone you love and being helpless to prevent it. Sitting by and watching is a painful condition that they have no cure for. surely there are no words a poem could contain to scratch the surface of those deep emotions but still I am compelled to try
Believe me, you have tried and you have succeeded, you have touched the soul of the matter. x
beautiful poem……… 🙂
It is you confined to the bed
But in me these words left unsaid
Are rendering me weak
I think my heart has sprung a leak
You may be almost gone
But your sweet memory strongly remains
And stabs me with brilliant pains
I command you to come back
I need you and that’s a fact
Heart wrenching and a beautiful testimony to those teary eyed hospital visits and desperate hopes.
May you and your loved one pull through!!!
Thank you Andrea. I am thankful for your sweet words. It is difficult to care so much, yet be unable to assist

VW, all I want to say for sharing this is – thank you 🙂
You are very welcome
warm salty tears
an hour feels like years
the heart heart heavy with hope
but strangled with the rope
of reality setting in
there’s no smile, there’s no grin
except in a memory afar
that lives where you are
thoughts and prayers are with you
Thank you deeply my friend. I appreciate your beautiful words
Chilling and thoughtful, I really like it!
Thank you kindly!
