WAITING FOR THE NEWS

They took you into surgery
like so many times before.
We waited an eternity.
We waited for the news.

The clock ticked off the minutes
and they turned into hours.
We sat, we talked, we waited.
We waited for the news.

The expression on the surgeon’s face
was enough. We knew what we
were going to hear but still,
we waited for the news.
