I feel your pain

Closing my eyes, hand resting on your tiny chest

I can feel your pain, as you fight for breath

Your body cold to touch, yet your soaking wet

The sweat rolling off, as you fight for your breath

Your body to tired, to tired to even open your presents

You’re laid there on the sofa, your groans showing they are present

Opening my eyes, hand resting on your tiny hand

I can feel your pain, as the mask fights to keep you alive

The oxygen pumping in, and being sucked back out

Your tiny face covered, as they try to stop you taking your last breath

Closing my eyes, my hand strokes your hair

I can feel your pain, as those wires try to keep you there

Each wire attached, making the machines beep

Your tiny body covered, as they try to get you to sleep

Your fighting so hard, yet you’re fighting to hard

Your lungs can’t take it, and slowly collapse

The machine keeps pumping, I watch in amazement

That machine is making you breath, without it you would be  deceased

Hand resting on your cheek, as your eyes finally wake

I can feel your pain, your tiny smile finally forming once again

You try to sit up, but you get told no

You reach for food, but you get told no

Your little eyes searching, wondering why

To young to realise you had practically died, and all I could do was cry

Hand holding your hand, You smile up to me

I can feel your pain, as your medication takes it away

Each one helping you stay alive, each one is important in its own way

Each one has helped you get to the lucky age, the of seven

I see your pain as your twin is healthy, she runs free and wild

Yet you struggle and cry, your lungs still unable to survive a cold

Your struggles as you have little hair, yet your twin has so much

If she could give it to you, she surely would

I can feel your pain, as you stay alive each day not knowing yet.

You could have died on so many days.
