Chemo Observation Poem
She lies there hooked up to an IV bag.
He sits next to her.
Not a word spoken between them
And yet, when her eyes are closed,
I catch him just gazing at her,
With nothing but love in his eyes.
Thinking about the decades they’ve been together.
Wishing that he was in her place
Wanting to take her pain away
Wondering how she’s going to make it this time.
And what to do
If she doesn’t.
