By your side...

I sit here by your side. You stayed by mine for so many days and nights. While I was growing. While I was sick. While I was upset. While I was happy. Even while I was mad at you. I sit by your side...praying to God to give you some life. Inside, lights beeping and flashing. Outside, lights beeping and flashing. Irony at its best. Today you look the most like yourself  to me. Aside from the new age buzz cut (new fashion trend), your swelling has gone down. Your eyes are twitching and to me I see life. I can wait a lifetime for you to heal. You gave five of us life....we owe you that. I am selfish because I want you back. Love you Mom.
