I thought I’d cry
I thought I’d give up the fight
Would I ever be prepared?
Would I make a perfect support system?
Is my faith strong enough to withstand the toils of life?
Is this the through sickness and health moment?
Are there many more days like this?
Here I am.
With nothing to give
I hold my hand out
His hand reaches to mine
Our eyes locked at each other as we make a profound statement at each other’s hearts.
It was a wordless moment. But our hearts spoke.
Together we are in this.
In this we are together.
And I watched him fall asleep as I sat down beside his hospital bed. His breathing was all that remained as the sedative medication kicked in.
I know now, I’m strong and capable.
