The blood pressure monitor whirs,
the life-giving oxygen machine hums.
Outside, nurses rush to and fro
caring for so many, including Mom.
Over so many years, different hospitals,
different patients, different diagnosis, same fear.
Seeing your parent become frail, sick,
never gets easier, just less unexpected.
The silence of healing: miraculous, incredible,
is a welcomed sound, however temporary.
