lyrics

I live in a place where it feels like visiting hours are always over. A blueish light from someone else’s tv flickers through the hallway, in through the doorway left ajar. The sheet and blanket are not quite warm enough to keep the chill from your bones after the sun has gone down. The experts used to stop by to extract blood, suggests tests, to cut, remove, and transplant. These days they look at the chart, shake their heads, and talk amongst themselves, never asking how I feel or what I want. I want to be left alone but I don’t want to be alone.

Lost in thought, I had not noticed the change in the room. A bouquet of flowers had been placed on the table by the side of the bed. I lifted the card to read it. The light coming in from the street was just bright enough for me to make out the words. The note said,

We are your flowers
Breathe in the fragrance
Drink in the color
Let it surround you
We are in your dreams
And we are here now
We see you
We love you
Stay beautiful

My head sank into the pillow. I smiled. I am ready. The words echoed in my head as I drifted off to sleep…

We see you
We love you
Stay beautiful
