Sometime after midnight A chilling sound fills the house The noise of people yelling In the distance sirens sound From the bedroom I peek out What’s that laying on the floor Slowly I move closer A cold feeling fills the air Much to my horror I see my dad laying there His skin was grayish white His eyes rolled back in his head My mother yelled to my father Please don’t leave comeback
In what seemed a flash The furniture went flying The room was filled with people And my mother stood there crying They did the chest compressions They breathed into his lungs But still he did not respond Or come back to the ones he loved The paddles were charged One... two... three... clear Again and again they tried But it appeared to no avail
They put him on the gurney And wheeled him out the door Loaded him into the ambulance But something was wrong The siren didn’t sound The ambulance didn’t move What the hell was going on They never did that before My mother crying said to us kids Go quick put on some clothes We’re all going to the hospital Wait we’ve never gone before
We quickly got into the car Rushed behind the ambulance We pulled into the hospital Watched them rush the gurney in We waited for what seemed forever In the hospital waiting room At last the doctor came out But by his look we knew He looked into my mother’s eyes Said we did everything we could But there was no bringing him back I ‘m so sorry to all of you
They took us back to see him So we could say goodbye I approached the bed cautiously With tears falling from my eyes There were tubes in his mouth And wires coming off his chest His skin was white and cold His lips were blue and cracked I didn’t want to let him go But they said that we must leave I felt a part of me died that night As they dragged me from the room I wish I would have said goodnight And how much that I loved you.
Life is unpredictable.....Always tell the people in your life how much you love them...for tomorrow may be to late....My dad died when I was 12 and I still regret not telling him that night.
