Five Words

five words



Heart on high alert

Frustration rising

Panic coursing through blood

Time excruciatingly painful

Every tic a pounding

A rhythm of frenzied dread

Waiting to hear

Waiting to know

Terrified of truth

Nagging doubt

Praying your wrong




Hope almost out of reach


Begging to get an update

Then you hear the five words

The five words that change your life

“We did everything we could”
