Good Together

By Lisa Marie Harmon

Tubes and wires
Nurses, needles
It was a shock
To see him
So pale, so weak
We could barely breathe
We never stopped
He seemed so helpless
And he would have been
But he wasn't
Because she was there
At the foot of his bed
And the other two
Each holding his hand
The boy was there
Making us laugh
And the six of us
In that tiny room
Were strong
Strong enough
To steel him up
And lead him out
And now
He’s good
Because we were good

National Poetry Writing Month entry, day 4.
