Sarah.

27 Mar

To a beloved member of my family, who is stopping treatment and going home from the hospital today.

 

I wish I could be you,

Floating in the deep.

With not a care in the world;

Nor a care to keep.

 

I wish I could be you,

Holding hands with another sort.

I’m just a simple peasant

To your majesty in this court.

 

I wish I could be you,

Dancing among the stars.

Down here you might be broken, bloodied

But up there you have no scars.

 

I wish I could be you,

To take your pain away.

I’d gladly die for you,

Or if you’d rather, stay.

 

I wish I could be you,

Lying in your cold, white hospital bed.

You have so much left to do

And there’s a pounding in my head.

 

I wish I could be you,

Sent home to be in peace.

You’ve left all those around you

Missing a crucial piece.

 

I wish I could be you,

Moving beyond, ahead, forward.

I’ve always been a step behind,

Just one lonely chord.

 

I wish I could be you,

And save your own life with mine.

Nothing would make me happier

Than to share with you one last glass of wine.

 

I wish I could be you,

Please don’t leave us now.

God must want you by his side;

I know there’s another way, but how…?

 

Regular content to resume tomorrow (or whenever I’m feeling well enough to do that damned photoshoot).
