(In Alliteration Form)

 

Old overworked aged heart,

Beating bravely without stopping;

Controlling carefully the rhythm of life,

The terminally ill man holding on dearly,

Amid an attack which can end in tears.

 

Weeping wife beside his bed,

Holding his hands tightly;

Wearily waiting for the bad news.

    Such a sad and familiar happening n this poorly world - a verse which touches the heart dear Doctor.

    A well written message that many of us have had to come to terms with.

    I watched my mother ache and grieve very similar... life works in mysterious ways and the past has to be practice as long as your story isn’t over yet 💯
