    wrote this for my mother.

    the pain i was suffering at the time was too much for me to handle and had to express myself

    to my mother (from a hospital bed)

    wires going in to me

    wires coming out

    i've still yet to discover

    what's it all about?

    i lie in bed i'm waiting

    i'm waiting for some news

    do i have a lot of time

    or nothing more to lose?

    the doctors come and sit with me

    try to make me smile

    try to make me all relaxed

    and distracted for a while

    but nothing they do is working

    and so i have to say

    although you do mean kindly

    can you please just go away?

    they leave me and i'm lying there

    i wonder what to do

    it's clear you've done this to me

    and i expect no help from you

    you just sit there smiling

    sit there with a grin

    soon you'll lose your child

    and find a strength with in

    a strength to keep on going

    a strength that will not shatter

    the fact it still remains

    i never really mattered

    you never showed your love to me

    you never showed you cared

    and when i needed you the most

    you were never there

    so take your sorry storry,

    far from this hospital bed

    and when you wake tomorrow, you'd be wishing i was dead

    but as i said it's okay

    you were never there for me

    and tomorrow you will suffer,

    just you wait and see

    Hun she was there she was at thie side of your bed caring for YOU if she did not care she would not have bother coming do you understand. Just showing up shows she does care but maybe she just does not know how to tell you

    the poem was written as if she was, as that;'s what she would have been thinking
