The Hospital

The Hospital
I sit in the uncomfortable chair and read the news from the paper
I'm always cheerful and always happyI smile
I ask her just to try
you have to eat
drink some water
walk around just a little
it will make you feel better
I lie
Walking through the well stocked shelves later
I try to find her favorite things
anything that might help
something she'll eat when she comes home
She holds my arm tight as we walk as if I can protect her
from the wind, cold and even the cancerI'm the strong one now
I hold her hand and take her home
