The Storm I listened as Distant thunder rumbled, Watched as lightening Lit the night sky. I listened as The doctor said no more, Watched as hope Evaporated from her being. I listened as the storm Approached, gaining strength and Watched the brilliant flashes Of the angry sky. I listened as she struggled To make words that didn't make sense, Watched as her light Turned from brightness to dark. I listened to the viscous Storm pass over, Watched as the heavy raindrops Transformed to a gray sky. I listened to her As she took her last breaths, Watched as she laboriously Took them. Now, I listen To the quietness, And watch the stillness Alone.
